A rare site

Learn, relax, and enjoy the view of Suisun Marsh at Rush Ranch.

Take a pause on Martin Luther King Day to learn about science while walking on the edge of Rush Ranch’s wild wetland. Join scientist and educator Sarah Ferner from San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve for a short walk near the edge of Suisun Marsh 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. We will learn about Rush Ranch’s tidal marsh, scientific research occurring there, and what King Tides can teach us about sea level rise. Bring your camera to participate in California King Tide Initiative’s citizen science photo monitoring. The walk will proceed rain or shine because stormy weather creates an even more interesting scene!

Update as of 1/14/15: This event is now full. Sarah will be leading a similar walk at China Camp State Park in San Rafael, CA on February 18th.
