Member Event — A Rising Tide in California

The California King Tides Project helps people visualize future sea level by observing the high tides of today. Come join us at this event open to members and volunteers to see one of the highest tides of the year. We will learn about climate change and how it affects our coastlines featuring two guest speakers, and also explore tide pools with Museum staff.

 Morning Session — 9am-11am

We will meet at the museum to then walk down together to Lover’s Point for photographing the high tides, where we are joining community scientists around the state in contributing photos to the California King Tide Project online. Then at 10am, we meet back at the PG Museum education classroom to explore the art of interpreting climate change for diverse audiences with Jim Covel of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Breakfast snacks provided.

 Afternoon Session — 1pm-3pm

Learn about the value of preserving our living coastlines with a representative of Elkhorn Slough Reserve in the museum education classroom, followed by a tide pooling session with Museum STREAM staff at Lovers Point.
