Turtle Back Nature Trail

N. San Pedro Road through China Camp State Park during high tide. Come to China Camp State Park on Thursday January 12th to take a beautiful walk while learning about local sea level rise research. Join scientist and educator Sarah Ferner from San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve for a short walk near the edge of China Camp’s tidal salt 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 the 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.

Registration Required:Registration through Friends of China Camp is required (but not yet open).

What to be prepared for: Please dress appropriately for weather, including walking on trails that will likely be wet or muddy and standing still in windy conditions. This event is primarily for adults.

Meeting place: Turtleback Hill Nature Trail within China Camp State Park. If N. San Pedro Rd. is heavily flooded, the meeting location will be moved east of the flooding.
