Event Details

For more than two decades, the Bay Area has invested almost a half billion dollars to restore 30,000 acres of tidal wetlands in the San Francisco Estuary (SFE). This remarkably successful effort to recover the SFE is now at risk, however, by a cascade of uncertainties associated with accelerating climate change.

Dr. Mike Vasey, Director of the SF Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), will review these new challenges facing Bay Area wetland recovery in the context of this past experience. He will explore how creativity, greater engagement, and focus on coastal resilience and adaptive management offers a path forward that may ultimately result in a better and more coherent outcome than originally envisioned.
