Citizens for East Shore Parks (CESP), a non-profit organization, will present a sea-level rise outdoor display and talks from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 7 during the North Richmond Shoreline Festival. Volunteers will meet at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline Park, 5551 Giant Highway, Richmond, CA 94806. Speakers will talk at 1 p.m. Then, everyone will carry banners to where the “new” shoreline will be with 2 meters of sea-level rise, which scientists project will take place by the year 2100 or sooner.
CESP invites the public to join in holding light blue fabric sea rise panels along the 2-meter mark, creating a continuous banner some 300 feet long to visually demonstrate the parts of S.F. Bay’s shoreline will move inland, submerging whole neighborhoods, thousands of acres of habitat, miles of freeway, the Oakland airport, and the land around the Oakland Coliseum. Each horizontal fabric panel is five feet high.
