Resilient California State Parks
San Diego Coast District Pilot
Piloting Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessments in State Park’s Dan Diego Coast District
Coastal Quest, in partnership with State Parks, launched a local and regional planning and coordination pilot project in the San Diego Coast District of the State Park System. Funded by the California Ocean Protection Council, the project will complete SLR vulnerability assessments and identify adaptation pathways for 9 San Diego Coast District park units. These vulnerability assessments will be performed using State Park’s holistic approach to vulnerability and adaptation planning that includes unique State Park assets, including access, recreation, cultural and natural resources, and facilities – assets not typically addressed in other assessments.
Working with the San Diego region’s local communities, government, and key stakeholders who enjoy State Parks, we will:
- Complete holistic vulnerability assessments,
- Identify pathways for adaptation,
- Select up to two sites to support feasibility studies and solution design, and
- Create a vulnerability assessment framework and guidance that can be applied to coastal state parks statewide and adapted for nearby communities.
Coastal Quest and State Parks look forward to engaging with the San Diego region’s local communities, government entities and other partners over the course of the project.
