Shrinking Shores

...a dramatic illustration of projected shoreline locations at Cowell's and Main beach between now and the end of the century

By 2100, without collective global efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions, California’s coastline probably won’t have much sand left to build a castle, plant an umbrella or bury your toes because of sea level rise. 

On Saturday, June 9 from 10:30 AM-1:30 PM the City of Santa Cruz Climate Action Program and its local partner organizations (Groundswell Coastal Ecology, Save The WavesSurfrider Foundation Santa Cruz ChapterSave Our Shores, Central Coast Wetlands Group, Marine Protected Areas, and Ecology Action) will be hosting an informational event about sea-level rise at Cowells Beach! We will start off the day with a beach clean-up with Save Our Shores at Cowells Beach at 9:00 AM and at 10:30 am there will be a dramatic illustration of projected shoreline locations between now and the end of the century across Cowells and Main Beach! The event will include information behind the projected rises, what the City and its partner organizations are doing about it, and will share opportunities to join the City’s planning for a coordinated response to sea level rise.
