Thank You Clif Bar Family Foundation for Helping Us Launch the Resilient Shoreline Program

With the help of Clif Bar Family Foundation CESP launched its Resilient Shoreline Program in 2017. The Resilient Shoreline Program is a natural extension of CESP's 30-year effort to protect open space and develop a unified shoreline park along the Bay's eastern shoreline. The Resilient Shoreline Program increases public awareness about climate change and its impact on the Bay shoreline and organizes a coalition of public leaders to implement timely solutions that prioritize natural approaches to create a resilient shoreline. This campaign combines advocacy, science and education.

Visualizing Sea-Level Rise @ McLaughlin Eastshore State Park

Join Citizens for East Shore Parks (CESP) to visualize sea-level rise at McLaughlin Eastshore State Park on Saturday, July 29, 2017. We’re inviting the public to make a statement along the shoreline by marking off where the “new” shoreline will be with 2-meters of sea-level rise. Volunteers will hold up blue banners along the 2-meter sea-level rise mark to raise awareness about sea-level rise and call on public leaders to look to resilient shoreline solutions to mitigate sea-level rise. The first Visualizing Sea-level Rise event was held in Jack London Oakland on April 22, 2017. Read more about this event in a write up from CSU East ...

Visualizing Sea-level Rise Event Recap

The image above was created by GROUNDWORKS Office. It shows the shoreline at Oakland's Jack London Square with 2-meters (approx. 6 feet) of sea-level rise. On Earth Day 2017 volunteers gathered together for CESP's first Visualizing Sea-level Rise event. Together we held fabric panels along the 2-meter sea-level rise mark to raise awareness about climate change and to "visualize" sea-level rise along Oakland's waterfront. The event engaged approximately 30 volunteers and was featured on 4 media outlets, KGO-TV, NBC Bay Area, The Pioneer (CSU East Bay newspaper) and KPFA-FM.
