On January 26th, the Climate Science Alliance team spent the day out in the community on Kumeyaay lands to visit with potential collaborators and partners that engage in coastal climate resilience work in San Diego, California. The team started the day meeting with Ana Xochilt Eguiarte, Binational Liaison, and Dr. Jeff Crooks, Research Coordinator, from the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve (TRNERR) to learn about resilience in the river valley and bi-national efforts to support community drive climate adaptation actions. Graced with the perfect weather and sunshine, we were able to spend time with our partners and walk around the Estuary as we learned about on-going projects and research.


Later in the afternoon, the team headed to Imperial Beach to meet with City of Imperial Beach staff, Megan Openshaw, Senior Planner, and Chris Helmer, Director of Environmental & Natural Resources, to learn more about the Bayshore Bikeway Resiliency Project. It was inspiring to learn about the plans, progress, and vision for addressing sea level rise, storm surge, and increasing access to the coast.


From the Climate Science Alliance team, thank you to all our partners for a great day in the field and opportunity to learn more about the good work taking place in the region.
