Friday, Feb 9th: 11:26pm - 11.44ft

There are lots of other places to observe and document the King Tides! Please send us any pictures you take from the baylands in South San Francisco Bay!

The King Tides help us to visualize how future sea level rise will impact our urban areas. In addition, they also provide visibility for pollution in the SF Bay by bringing up tons of garbage onto our shorelines.

This program is brought to you by San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society (SFBWS) and Santa Clara Valley Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention Program (SCVURPPP), with support from Cargill, Inc.
