The King Tides are coming!
Get ready for the highest tides of the season with a free happy hour presentation on Friday, January 20th, at 5:30PM at Tolovana Hall in Cannon Beach.
We’ll enjoy snacks and drinks while exploring the science behind the phenomena of these occasional – and extraordinarily high – tides.
We’ll also look at how rising sea levels will affect our communities, exploring maps and photos of past and present, collected by the Oregon King Tides Project.
The presentation is timed to lead into the final set of king tides of the winter, running from the morning of January 20th and continuing through the weekend.
We’ll also share ways you can get involved in other local citizen and community science projects with Jesse Jones from CoastWatch.
The Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) will also have two representatives joining this event. Sea Level Rise Adaptation Fellow, Carl Hendrickson, will share his work related to advancing local planning in Clatsop County in response to sea level rise. Coastal Outreach Fellow, Elissa Connolly-Randazzo, will share her projects that will educate communities about the ecology and history of Oregon’s beaches and dunes.
The event is free to attend. It takes place Friday, January 20th, at 5:30PM at Tolovana Hall in Cannon Beach.
Attendees are encouraged to bring snacks and drinks, either for themselves or to share.
Tolovana Hall is located at 3779 S. Hemlock St. in Cannon Beach.
