Tidal marsh at China Camp State Park flooded by a King Tide.

Tidal marsh at China Camp State Park flooded by a King Tide.


Come to China Camp State Park on January 20th to take a beautiful lunchtime 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. The walk will proceed rain or shine because stormy weather creates an even more dramatic scene! The meeting location may change slightly if the road is flooded.

Update as of 1/14/15: This event is now full. Sarah will be leading a similar walk on February 18th. To register for the February walk, follow this link: http://goo.gl/forms/7dkCpSGk2y
