CoastWatch Volunteer Coordinator Jesse Jones is hosting a gathering devoted to the King Tides Project on Thursday, Jan. 23, 6 p.m. at the Homegrown Public House & Brewery (294 Laurel St.) in Florence.  It’s a chance to learn about the project and its contribution to citizen science, get specific instructions about how best to participate in the final round of “king tides” this winter, Feb. 8-10, and socialize with other participants and conservation-oriented folks.  Food and drink are available from Homegrown.

In addition to Jesse's presentation, the event will feature a talk by Adrian Laufer, NOAA Coastal Management Fellow with the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD), who will review the King Tides Project's ten years in Oregon.  DLCD's Coastal Management Program is CoastWatch's partner in organizing the King Tides Project.
