The first high-tide sequence of the coming winter, the “king tides,” takes place Nov. 15-17. To help volunteer photographers prepare to capture the reach of these tides as part of the King Tides Project, an online kick-off event is planned for Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 6 p.m.
This year, all kickoff events will be online, with three regional sessions focused on sites where volunteer photographers are needed. Meg Reed from OCMP will provide a tutorial on how to upload the photos to the Oregon King Tides database.
CoastWatch partners with the Oregon Coastal Management Program to organize the King Tides Project in Oregon each year.
This north coast session will be co-hosted by Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve. Future events for the central and south coasts will be similarly formatted to focus volunteers on sites in need of photos. Any prospective volunteer along the Oregon coast interested in participating in the project’s first round in November will be able to gather the basics from this first webinar.
