The first high-tide sequence of the coming winter, the “king tides,” takes place Nov. 15-17.  To help volunteer photographers prepare to capture the reach of these tides as part of the King Tides Project, an online kick-off event is planned for Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 6 p.m.  CoastWatch partners with the Oregon Coastal Management Program to organize the King Tides Project in Oregon each year; the Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve is co-sponsoring this particular event.

This webinar will focus on sites where volunteer photographers are needed on the north coast, and provide a tutorial on how to upload the photos to the Oregon King Tides database. Future events for the central and south coasts will also be similarly formatted to focus volunteers on sites in need of photos. However, any prospective volunteer interested in participating in the project’s first round in November will be able to gather the basics from this first webinar.
