Upcoming Speaker Series Event
The Ocean is Moving In: Building Resilience to Sea Level Rise – November 30, 2021 at 12:30 p.m.
Sea level rise threatens California’s beloved beaches, wetlands, and tidepools, and more broadly, our coastal communities and state economy. Climate change is accelerating, which means now is the time to prepare, adapt, and mitigate this complex threat. But how do we adjust to sea level rise and what does that mean for our policies and investments? Join us for a science update from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and to hear how California’s Tribal, state, and local governments are coming together to build resilience for our world-renowned coast. Register via Zoom.
