Please post images of things you value that could be impacted by Sea Level Rise and/or historic photos from storm impacts.
The sea along Marin’s coast has risen 8 inches since record-keeping began. The best science available says it will rise substantially more in coming years. The C-SMART project (“Collaboration: Sea-level Marin Adaptation Response Team”) is working to bring communities together to better understand the challenge and examine possible responses.
As part of that program, we will be hosting three public workshops, each focused on different areas of West Marin’s coast, to introduce the potential exposure of people, natural resources, and the built environment to the possible effects of sea level rise over the decades to come. The workshops are scheduled for the evenings of October 28, 29 and 30 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Additional details may be found on our News & Meetings webpage.
We want to give those who could not attend an evening workshop the opportunity to contribute to the Sea Level Rise conversation. Just like participants in the workshops, we invite you to share photos and images that represent the things that make Marin’s coast a special place for you. In a separate topic on this Open Marin forum, you can also collaborate by articulating the values, resources and assets that could be vulnerable to rising seas. Access to resources is also available on the website www.MarinSLR.org. For further information, please contact Lauren Armstrong at email@example.com or 415-473-4333.
