Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
Each winter, king tides—the highest tides of the year—offer a spectacular shoreside show and a sneak preview of what rising sea levels will mean in years to come. Join Washington Sea Grant, along with the Jefferson Marine Resource Committee and Local 20/20, for Port Townsend’s first King Tide Viewing Party, presented with support from the Washington Department of Ecology. Free snacks and hot beverages will take the edge off the chill, and coastal experts will explain the science of these jumbo tides. Bring your camera and post your king tide photos on the King Tide Project’s online gallery.
What: King Tide Viewing Party
When: Friday, Nov. 18 at 8 a.m.
Where: Salmon Club Boat Ramp, Northwest Maritime Center, Port Townsend
