Conversations About Landscape: People and the Baylands: Public Learning and Equitable Access During Climate Adaptation

landscapeThe Baylands are the tidal wetlands along the shore of San Francisco Bay, which provide a rich habitat for wildlife and can help to protect our shorelines from sea level rise and other climatic threats. As the Bay Area gears up for climate change, how can we engage and include a broad public for increased dialogue in the planning of, and access to, our future resilient shorelines? How can we include the voices and stories of people and wildlife in our future ecosystems? Join us for a panel discussion about questions and balanced considerations of public access, restoration, and education in these sensitive ecosystems. 

Speakers include:

Jessica Davenport, project manager for the SR 37 Baylands Group, State Coastal Conservancy

Kay Flavell, director of New Pacific Studio and active in preserving Vallejo's built heritage, especially Sperry Mill on the Vallejo waterfront.

Jackie Flin, executive director of the A. Philip Randolph Institute, SF and community leader in the India Basin Restoration Project

David Halsing, executive project manager, South Bay Salt Pond

Brad McCrea, director, Regulatory Program, BCDC

Mark Stacey, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UC Berkeley; co-leads Resilient Infrastructure as Seas Rise (RiSER)
