California King Tides Project

The California King Tides Project,, is a community science project that helps visualize future sea level by observing the highest tides of today. Students and others can help by taking and sharing photos of the shoreline during King Tides (the highest tides during the winter months) to create a record of changes to our coast and estuaries. Visit the website to find out when the next King Tides are and how to participate.
