Waterfront Resilience Activities and Learning

Missing the Waterfront? Stay Engaged!

The Port of San Francisco's Waterfront Resilience Program misses connecting with Bay Area youth and their families. With events postponed, we hope we can keep hearing from you and you can keep learning about waterfront resilience. We'll update this page with more resources and fun activities for families.

To hold us all over...

Virtual waterfront resilience tour - Take a self-guided virtual tour of resilience initiatives led by the Port of San Francisco along our city’s hardworking and beautiful waterfront!

Waterfront History Time Lapse Video... coming soon!


Activity: Map Your Favorite Parts of the Waterfront

  1. Tell us what's most important to you along the waterfront by using a cool interactive map.
  2. Follow this link and drop pins on the map - it's easy!
  3. Your ideas will be on the map for the Port and everyone else to see. Thanks for sharing your favorite waterfront spots!


Activity: Waterfront Memories

  1. Catch a fly ball at a Giant's game? Visit the EcoCenter? Take a field trip to the Exploratorium? Sample fruit at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market? Fish off a pier? Tell us your waterfront memory and share a photo if you have one!
  2. Follow this link and upload photos and/or stories about past trips to the Port of San Francisco - it's easy!
  3. Your ideas will be on the message board for the Port and everyone else to see! We'll share favorites over the Port's social media.


Activity: Think Big and Help the Port Envision the Waterfront in 2100 and Beyond

  1. The Port is working to prepare the waterfront for sea level rise and earthquakes and these projects allow us to think what else we'd like to see along the waterfront.
  2. Now imagine the waterfront in the year 2100... that's 80 years from now!
  3. Follow this link to tell us three things you'd like to see along the future waterfront - and think big!
  4. You may have seen this activity at the Port's table at outreach events like Cal Academy Family Nights (pictured below).


Activity: Color the Waterfront

  1. Download and print individual page from the Waterfront Coloring Book - check out the Port Mad Libs and mazes too!
  2. Share your artwork with us on social media by tagging the Port.


A Resilient Waterfront for the Next Generation

Hear from Youth Commissioner Arianna Nassiri as she speaks to the importance of the San Francisco waterfront and making it safe, accessible, and sustainable for future generations.


Lasers!? Soil Samples!? 3D Modeling!?

Watch a short illustrated video showing what the Port's been up to as part of the Waterfront Resilience Program's Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment. Or in simpler terms, how the Port's been learning a lot more about how earthquakes and flooding may impact the waterfront.


Partner Resources

The Port is so fortunate to have fantastic partners like the Exploratorium, Aquarium of the Bay, and California Academy of Sciences. Check out some of their resilience-related online activities and visit their websites for additional content:
