Event Details

Join us in a workshop brought to you by the San Francisco Bay Joint Venture and Point Blue Conservation Science and hosted and co-sponsored by the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.

Learn how to use two of Point Blue’s climate-smart tools to develop and implement restoration and adaptation actions for our uncertain future.  Through a live demo and opportunity for hands on practice with the improved Future Marshes Tool, you will learn how the tool’s new features can help assess the resilience or vulnerability of marshes and restoration sites to different sea-level rise and sediment assumption scenarios. You will also have the opportunity to learn how Point Blue’s Climate-Smart Riparian Restoration Toolkit can help in planning restoration projects that follow climate-smart principles and can be used to select plant species for revegetation that are more likely to be successful under a range of future conditions. 

Workshop Goal:  To empower local decision-makers to develop climate-smart strategies and to take actions to ensure healthy, sustainable, and resilient riparian and wetland ecosystems and communities.
