The Trinidad Bay Watershed Council and the City of Trinidad invite the public, agencies and other stakeholders to a presentation and discussion of the draft document Climate Change Vulnerability Report and Adaptation Response during our upcoming Trinidad Bay Watershed Council meeting on Tuesday, April 26 at 6:30 pm at the Civic Club Room at City Hall. The draft Report is available here.
The report presents potential effects that could result from climate change, determines areas that could be at risk, and identifies preliminary adaptation strategies the City could adopt to mitigate the potential climate impacts. The Climate Change Vulnerability Report and Adaptation Response is being developed as part of the City’s Local Coastal Program Update Project, funded in part by the Coastal Commission. During this project, climate change considerations and adaption responses will be incorporated into the General Plan / Coastal Land Use Plan as appropriate.
Following discussion of the Climate Change Report, we will hear news and updates from the Trinidad-Westhaven Watershed Partners and discuss TBWC participation at this year’s Fish Festival.

This will be TCLT’s second work day to remove invasive ivy from the Land Trusts most treasured, and unknown, properties. “We accomplished a lot on our first day two weeks ago! We hope you can make it or at least support our efforts to preserve the biological integrity of our properties and easements. It is quite the battle!” said Steen Trump, Trinidad Coastal Land Trust Board Trustee. For more details, call Steen at (707) 834-4499.
Pilot Point is the Land Trust’s largest landholding located at the north end of Moonstone Beach with beautiful Two Creek running through it. Pilot Point is a property dedicated to the conservation of native flora and fauna and is a research area for Humboldt State University. Its southern slopes are home to the increasingly rare mountain beaver, a large (and some think cute) nocturnal rodent unrelated to the true beaver.
