California King Tides Project Needs You!

Do you have a smart phone, like to take photos, enjoy being by the water, and don't mind getting up early? If so, participating in the California King Tides Project is a great way to help scientists, decision makers, city planners, and the general public visualize the future of our coasts. 

The California King Tides Project is asking members of the public to photograph extreme high tides along their local coastline to highlight how coastal homes, infrastructure, and ecological habitats may be affected by future sea level rise. 

Upcoming King Tide Dates:
Jan. 20th at 7:55am
Jan. 21st at 8:40am
