Two-Way Bay: Estuary Leaders Reflect on Resilience

This 8-minute film interviews eight directors of water quality, restoration, and environmental programs around the San Francisco Estuary about their experience of the 2017-2018 Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge.  ESTUARY News asked these leaders — some of whom also sit on the SF Estuary Partnership’s Implementation Committee — how the results of the Challenge fit in with what they are already doing around the Bay to prepare for rising sea levels.

Introducing the Bay Shoreline Flood Explorer

This new website, developed by San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission and the San Francisco Estuary Institute, will help Bay Area local governments and communities access interactive maps of current local flood risks due to sea level rise and storms. These maps highlight what the Bay Area could look like without implementing local and regional plans to minimize those risks. They also will help inform and empower Bay Area citizens to connect with ongoing efforts and community organizations working to minimize those impacts.

About the Estuary Partnership

The San Francisco Estuary Partnership is a collaborative regional program of resource agencies, non-profits, citizens, and scientists working to protect, restore, and enhance water quality and fish and wildlife habitat in and around the San Francisco Bay Delta Estuary. Working cooperatively, we share information and resources that result in studies, projects, and programs that improve the Estuary and communicate its value and needs to the public. The Association of Bay Area Governments is the home agency for Partnership staff and finances. Our offices are located at the Bay Area Metro Center in San Francisco.
