As Janis Selby Jones walks along the beach, she collects litter that has washed up with the waves or was swept out with the run-off. Single-use water bottles, plastic bags, balloons, toys, cell phones, cleaning products, and food packaging are some of the things curated by the tides. Many aspects of modern culture are represented in the detritus that she photographs with her iPhone. As she gazes toward the ocean, beyond the remnants of our daily lives, Janis can’t help but wonder what is on the horizon.
The Bay Model Visitor Center is a fully accessible education center administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which makes possible the viewing of a scientific tool: a working hydraulic model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento - San Joaquin River Delta System.
The Model provides scientists, educators and citizens interested in San Francisco Bay and the Bay - Delta Model a unique opportunity to view the complete bay-delta system at a glance. The Center gives an introduction and provides an overview of the system. Tours are available for groups with advanced reservations. These tours can be tailored to the technical level of the group. The Corps of Engineers encourages use of the Visitor Center by scientific and technical groups for meetings and seminars provided certain criteria are met.
