Poplar Beach

Please join the  City of Half Moon Bay  and the   San Mateo County Office of Sustainability  for an informational event about sea level rise at Poplar Beach, as part of a statewide campaign called Shrinking Shores. It’s one of many events around the state that will be held in anticipation of   World Oceans Day, (June 8), a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future.
At Poplar Beach on June 9, beachgoers will see an illustration about projected ocean levels through the end of the century. Temporary signs will be placed into the sand and on the bluffs to depict scenarios of future sea level rise and bluff erosion. The City and County will staff a booth near the Poplar Beach parking lot where visitors can get information, ask questions, and learn about the science behind the predicted changes.  Poplar Beach is located at the end of Poplar Street, past Railroad Avenue in Half Moon Bay.
Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County, and other agencies on the California coast from San Diego to Humboldt County, are working to create awareness of this critical issue. The goal is to educate and inform people, and build a greater understanding of predicted sea level rise and its impacts on our coastline and communities.
