The following is a statement from Laird:
I have been mapping and studying Humboldt (Wigi) Bay for 20 years. I have been active since 2010 in promoting a regional approach to planning for sea level rise in the bay.
I prepared Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessments, co-founded the Humboldt State Sea Level Rise Initiative, and recently launched the HSU Humboldt Sea Level Rise Public Forum.
I spent a lot of time kayaking, hiking and photographing in Humboldt
Bay. I circled the 102 mile shoreline of the bay. I am particularly drawn to the dynamic intertidal zone, the landscape of canals, mud flats and salt marshes between the extreme King and Minus tides.
The bay and its reflective waters and ever-changing atmospheric displays are a pleasure to observe and photograph. My photographs of Humboldt Bay have been exhibited at the Morris Graves Museum of Art.
