North County Recreation District


The first round of the current winter’s king tides are coming up Nov. 25-27. Volunteer photographers are invited to assist in the Oregon King Tides Photo Project, a citizen science activity, by taking photos that document the highest reach of the year’s highest tides. The Oregon King Tides Photo Project takes place throughout Oregon’s coastal region.

As a prelude, the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition is inviting everyone interested in the project or concerned about how climate change will affect the coast to a party. A “King Tide Project Kick-Off” is planned for Friday, Nov. 15, 5-8 p.m., at the North County Recreation District headquarters (36155 9th St.) in Nehalem.  The Kickoff will be held in the kitchen and gallery at the NCRD and there is easy entry just off the upper parking lot.

The party will feature food, photos from the last decade of the King Tides Photo Project, and a talk from oceanographer Francis Chan about ocean acidification and hypoxia and the climate impacts already being felt in Oregon’s ocean.  This event is free and open to all. The event is co-sponsored by the Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve.
