San Leandro Bay/Oakland-Alameda Estuary Adaptation Working Group

The Working Group is a coalition of shoreline communities and stakeholders working to co-create a coordinated and inclusive future-looking action plan and subregional organizational structure to accelerate sea level rise adaptation, protect and restore water quality and habitat, and promote community resilience.

The Working Group is organized around the SFEI San Leandro OLU, which stretches from the Bay Bridge touchdown to Oyster Bay, and includes jurisdictions, agencies and CBOs that have an interest in the shoreline within the OLU, as well as regional and state collaborators.

Our shoreline is vulnerable to coastal inundation and rising groundwater and contamination as a result of rising sea levels. These climate induced hazards will put critical infrastructure at risk, damage habitat, and further burden already vulnerable communities. Our goal is to create an inclusive, transformative, and equitable climate-ready community along the San Leandro Bay and Oakland-Alameda Estuary shoreline.


The Working Group meets quarterly on the second Wednesday of the month.
