On January 21-22, we will experience the year's first King Tides, which occur when there is alignment of the gravitational pull between the sun, moon, and Earth. King Tides show in stark reality how the one-to-two foot rise in sea level expected during the next few decades will look along our shorelines. Learn about the future effects on the shorelines and how we are implementing plans for sea level rise and habitat and shoreline resiliency.
VIRTUAL King Tides Program at Coyote Hills: Sat. Jan 21 from 11-11:30 am
Join Coyote Hills naturalists on a Facebook Live event to virtually experience the highest tides of the year, giving us a sneak preview of our future with predicted sea level rise in the Bay Area. Find out what causes them, how they impact plants, animals and humans, and what we can do to reduce those impacts. (Live program canceled due to flooded roads.)
King Tides at Radke Martinez: Sun. Jan 22 from Noon to 2 pm
Experience the highest tides of the year and a glimpse into the future. Discover what causes king tides and explore the tidal zone on this walk and talk. The terrain is flat, but not paved. Please dress for the weather, wear boots, and expect to get little wet. Bringing water and snacks is recommended. Drop-in program, all ages.
2022 King Tides Around the Bay Videos: During the 2022 King Tides, naturalists streamed two live events to share the future effects on the shorelines and how we are implementing plans for sea level rise and habitat and shoreline resiliency. Watch the King Tides Around the Bay videos on YouTube, Into the Delta and Along the Shoreline.
