On May 13th, more than 100 engaged citizens joined Save The Bay for a live update on our advocacy work to protect and restore the Cargill Salt Ponds in Redwood City. Save The Bay staff gave an update on our ongoing lawsuit against Trump’s EPA and our campaign to prevent development on the Bay. Panelists chronicled the history of salt production in the Bay Area and demonstrated how wetland restoration at the Cargill site and across the region will protect Bay communities from climate-driven sea level rise.
Amanda Brown-Stevens, Executive Director of Greenbelt Alliance, presented her work on the “South Bay Sponge” project, a plan for continuously restored wetlands that could integrate green infrastructure, recreation space, and transit-oriented affordable housing while protecting some of the largest economic engines of the Bay Area from flooding and rising seas.
