California King Tides Annual Project begins on Sunday November 15 2020.
Help people visualize sea level rising by taking pictures and submitting them to the California King Tides Project.
Join in to learn about tides and how sea level rise is impacting our local coastline, then head to the local marine protected area to document the effects of the King Tides as a citizen scientist for the California King Tides Project.
The California King Tides Project helps people visualize future sea level by observing the highest high tides of today.
You can help by taking and sharing photos of the shoreline during King Tides to create a record of the changes to our coast from sea level rise.
