King Tides are upon us!
King Tides are the highest high tides of the year, and this season they are December 4th and 5th, and January 2nd and 3rd. Get out to our shorelines and get this haunting preview of sea level rise, when our ocean and bays encroach on a lot of our habitats and infrastructure. See our movie about King Tides, and come join us at Rose Creek on December 4th at 7am to see it in person.
We encourage you to get out to the ReWild area and walk and bike the paths in our public park. Bring your binoculars! The Blue Line Trolley is open, and a bus line goes very close to this corner of the Bay on Ingraham St.
