Description

The Adapting to Rising Tides: East Bay Regional Park District Project aims to preserve shoreline parks in the face of climate change. Adapting to Rising Tides (ART) is a program of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC), which brings together local, regional, state and federal agencies and organizations, as well as non-profit and private associations for collaborative planning projects on sea level rise and climate change. Building from the ART Subregional Project in Alameda County, the ART Program worked with East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) park managers and staff to take a closer look at shoreline parks in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The project objectives were to develop a better understanding of park-specific vulnerabilities and consequences of flooding impacts, and to develop adaptation responses for both individual parks and the park district as a whole.
