Bay Currents Talk: Mud Matters!
Lowly mud is vital to San Francisco Bay. Its fine particles build marshes and mud flats, and profoundly affect water quality and wildlife. But mud seems to be growing scarcer at the same time that changing climate and sea level threaten both natural wetlands and our manmade communities and infrastructure around the Bay.
Jeremy Lowe, Senior Coastal Geomorphologist at ESA in San Francisco, will talk about the historic and current role of mud in the bay – and how, in the face of sea-level rise, undervalued resources like mud and wastewater can be critical in creating new, more sustainable shorelines.
Refreshments 7 PM, talks begin promptly at 7:30. Bay Currents talks, sponsored by Friends of Five Creeks, are free, but seating is limited.
