Celebrate the New Year learning about science and nature. Join Sarah Ferner for an interpretive program during one of the highest high tides of the year – a King Tide. Nature should put on a quietly beautiful show as the rising tide slowly floods the marsh.
- On New Year’s Eve meet at Rush Ranch at 11 am for a guided walk – rsvp required. Update: This walk is full and we are no longer accepting reservations. We are thrilled to know so many people are interested in learning during the holidays! Please consider viewing the King Tide at Rush Ranch on New Year’s Day, or joining Sarah for an event at China Camp on that day.
- On New Year’s Day stop by our Pop-up Interpretive Station on top of Bullet Hill in China Camp State Park anytime between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm (the tide is expected to be highest at 11:42 am). This is an informal event – no rsvp needed – just stop by to start a New Year of learning!
At both events, we will learn about tidal marshes, local climate science research, and what King Tides can teach us about sea level rise in our own community. Bring your camera to participate in California King Tide Initiative’s citizen science photo monitoring. These events will proceed rain or shine.
