King Tides Viewing Party in Oak Harbor
January 25 @ 8:28 am
King tides are the annual extreme-high tides that occur whenever the moon is closest to Earth. They are a dramatic feature of Washington winters – and a glimpse of what our future in Western Washington may look like as sea levels rise. A public event in Oak Harbor on Friday, Jan. 25, presented by Washington Sea Grant offers an opportunity to learn about king tides, why they expect sea levels to rise and the latest sea level rise projections in Washington.
The Washington Sea Grant king tides viewing party is an opportunity for the public to take pictures of king tides from the shoreline and learn about sea level rise in their community with experts on site to answer questions about king tides and sea level rise and talk about ways citizens can participate.
