The king tides are right around the corner: Dec 12-14 and Jan 10-13! Come share the king tides season with us over coffee on December 14th! Bring your coffee mug, camera, and jacket, and join representatives from the County of San Mateo’s sea level rise team to witness, document, and discuss the king tides. The king tides occur annually and cause a tide about a foot higher than average high tides, which can cause flooding. When combined with large waves and a storm, the high tides can make for quite a show. This naturally occurring event can give a glimpse of what we could expect of sea level rise and what may become the new average sea level in the Bay Area.

We’re partnering with the California King Tides Project (http://seachangesmc.us11.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=40c74669d3d70d2d21ece795a&id=71a01a726f&e=6fa0fac571) , which documents this phenomenon and invites citizens and students of all ages to participate by taking photographs for agencies like the USGS or NOAA to use in understanding this change. So come prepared to drink some coffee, shoot some photos, and learn about your changing environment.

Join the sea level rise conversation at the King Tides & Coffee Event (http://seachangesmc.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=40c74669d3d70d2d21ece795a&id=1b59d13a01&e=6fa0fac571) !
