A virtual presentation by WA SeaGrant's Bridget Trosin and Dave Wilkinson.
Join us in a Zoom webinar to learn about the natural conditions that create king tides, projected sea level rise for Port Townsend, the Washington King Tide Program, and local efforts to monitor these events and document total water levels. A demonstration on how to use the MyCoast app for contributing your observations on king tides will also be provided.
Co-presented by PTMSC and the Jefferson Co. Marine Resources Committee. The presentation is free.
