Sea level rise forum Saturday in Castro Valley

CASTRO VALLEY — Climate change and rising sea levels can be scary topics, but a community forum is planned for Saturday, Feb. 22, to help people prepare

“What?! Sharks in My Backyard?” will explore what is happening with climate change and what residents can do. It takes place at the Castro Valley Library.

Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center naturalists will lead a community discussion, and representatives of the Adapting to Rising Tides Project will talk about local effects.

Also taking part in the forum are Starr King Unitarian Universalist Church, Hayward; Hayward Area Recreation and Parks Department, MoveOn.org, 350Bay Area.org, the American Association of University Women, Hayward Area Shoreline Planning Agency Citizens Advisory Committee and the American Association of University Women and others.

The forum starts at 2 p.m. at the library, 3600 Norbridge Ave., Castro Valley.
