Join Docent Naturalists Bobbie Riedel, Melissa Hero, and Nick Yatsko at high tide along the boardwalk and overlook platforms during a king tides event. These tides, expected to get up to 9 feet, often force rare birds out of hiding. Two of your docents are expert birders and will assist with observations in the marshlands. You'll also learn about the phenomenon of king tides and tidal systems.
(Note: Wear waterproof shoes. Bring your phone or camera if you'd like to participate in the California Coastal Commission King Tide Project to help experts visualize future sea levels, and create a record of changes to our coast https://www.coastal.ca.gov/kingtides/).
