King Tides Viewing Party
January 22 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
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 on Tuesday, Jan. 22, presented by The Nature Conservancy and Surfrider Foundation, offers an opportunity to learn about king tides, why they expect sea levels to rise and the latest sea level rise projections in Washington.
At Willapa Landing Park in Raymond, Washington at 12:30pm, The Nature Conservancy will co-host a Washington Sea Grant king tides viewing party where the public is invited to take pictures of king tides from the shoreline and learn about sea level rise in their community. During the event, Surfrider Foundation will host a Southwest Washington “fly over,” courtesy of Light Hawk, to document the king tide event with aerial photos and Go Pro footage.
