Description:
 
 
Please join the Lower Rogue Watershed Council and the Rogue Basin Partnership in welcoming Fran Recht to give a presentation to the Gold Beach Community on
 
Sea Level Rise: Conserving Tidal Wetlands for the Future 
 
As sea level rises, our tidal wetlands will become inundated or submerged more frequently, as indicated by images taken during the highest tides of the year (king tides). With vegetation unable to withstand more inundation, tideflats will be submerged, low marshes may become tide flats, and high marshes and tidal swamps may become low marshes. Are there nearby uplands that could become our future tidal wetlands? Where are these “landward migration zones” (LMZs) located, and how can we help keep them available to provide the tidal wetland functions we value in the future?
