Join us for an early morning walk with Reserve Research Coordinator, Kerstin Wasson to designated King Tide Sites on the Elkhorn Slough Reserve. Bring your camera and help record one of the season’s highest tides!


We are pleased to announce that this year Reserve Research Coordinator Kerstin Wasson will lead the walk to several designated King Tide Sites on Elkhorn Slough Reserve. Kerstin will share her insight on the impacts of sea level rise on the Elkhorn Slough. Participants are invited to bring their cameras and record the effects of the season’s King Tides on natural resources and infrastructure. Photos will be posted on the California King Tides Initiative website and on the Elkhorn Slough Reserve website. This is a free public event.


King Tides are the highest tides of the year; they offer a window into the future when average daily tides will be as high or higher due to sea level rise. Learn more about this during the walk!
