The Office of Sustainability and the San Mateo County Parks Foundation will host “Shrinking Shores,” an informational event to help the public visualize sea level rise, on Aug. 31 as part of the new Coyote Nights park mixer series. The foundation recently launched the summer park mixer program to connect more people to the parks in a relaxed and social setting while also introducing them to new ideas.

Coyote Point visitors will see a dramatic illustration of projected sea levels through the end of the century thanks to temporary signs placed into the sand to depict future scenarios. County staff will provide a brief overview on the topic of climate change and sea level rise at the Captain’s House at Coyote Point before leading a tour to the promenade where visitors can view the temporary signs, ask questions and learn about the science behind the changes.
“Shrinking Shores” will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31 at Coyote Point, Captain’s House, 1701 Coyote Point Drive San Mateo. The brief overview begins at 6:20 p.m.
