King Tide Community Science Events

January 22 @ 8:15 am - 10:00 am

Join Heal the Bay this January to Capture the King Tide

This January, Heal the Bay is co-hosting TWO community science events for all ages to document the King Tide, a huge tidal phenomenon seen only a few times a year.  Taking pictures and recording the King Tide can help climate scientists predict the future of Californias coastline in face of the climate change.

Join Heal the Bay and other climate community members to SAFELY capture the King Tide at either Santa Monica Beach Pier or Manhattan Beach Peir on Sunday, January 22, 2023.

Presented by Climate Action Santa Monica
Join Heal the Bay and Climate Action Santa Monica for a gathering by the ocean to witness and document this natural phenomenon.  At the precise moment of the most intense gravitational force on the ocean, help community scientists take photos of the waves and their reach, and document the impact on local infrastructure, as part of the California King Tides Project. Then head over to the Heal the Bay Aquarium for educational demonstrations to learn about the planetary forces that cause the King Tides to occur. Enjoy refreshments while you meet and mingle with other members of the climate community and learn about the effects of climate on sea levels. Come celebrate the power of the ocean and deepen your connection to nature when we Capture the King tide together.  More info and register.
