King Tides Walk

Saturday, January 23, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
Cooley Landing

When: Saturday, January 23rd, 2016 10am – 12pm

As part of the California King Tides Initiative, Acterra Stewardship invites members of the public to observe and document the highest seasonal tides, or “king tides,” while learning about salt marsh ecology. The event will begin with an educational talk about our baylands and the tides with a docent from Don Edwards Wildlife Refuge. Then we will begin monitoring the King Tides with a walk. During the walk, attendees will be encouraged to photograph the high tides and the impact of rising waters on wildlife habitat in the baylands. Participants can then share those images through Flickr/social media and contribute to a living record of the changes to California’s shorelines-- providing a glimpse of what our daily tides may look like in the future as a result of sea level rise. Snacks and light refreshments provided. Rain or shine. If you have questions contact Jessica Sanchez, Jessica.sanchez@acterra.org.
