We’re celebrating the conclusion of the 2017-2018 King Tide Project with a party on Monday, Feb. 5, beginning at 6 p.m. at the 7 Devils Brewing Co. in Coos Bay.  We’ll furnish the finger food—drinks and meals available no host from the brewery. We have wonderful raffle items!

We’ll be mingling, viewing the photos taken as part of this year’s project, and educating ourselves about sea level rise and erosion with a short, entertaining talk.  Everyone is welcome to attend, whether or not they participated in the project—this is a chance to learn about king tides and sea level rise, and perhaps plan on getting involved next fall.

We will also have a special speaker, Jonathan Allan of the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, who will speak on his recent studies of coastal erosion rates.  Watch this space for details about his talk.
