Journey along the San Francisco waterfront, and through time, to hear an amazing tale about the ground beneath your feet on this walking tour.
The Embarcadero is a broad pedestrian walkway at the water’s edge of downtown San Francisco. It hugs the Financial District’s skyscrapers on one side and the glistening Bay on the other. Once part of the Bay, in 1849 this area was filled in to create the city’s downtown area. Now, climate change threatens to reclaim this land.
On this walk from Rincon Park to the Exploratorium, you’ll hear about how rising seas and increasing storm surges are predicted to flood streets, and the infrastructure above and below. Learn what we can do to save this magnificent jewel, and what the future might look like.
With most of the world’s cities built along water, climate change is a challenge for us all.
