King tides

King tides.

MANZANITA — Learn about Oregon’s King Tides Photo Project 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, at the Hoffman Center for the Arts, 594 Laneda Ave.

The final king tides are Monday through Wednesday, Feb. 18 through 20. We will watch a slideshow of the best photos this season and learn about how to get involved.

We also will hear about Oregon’s dunes and beaches, and the impacts of global warming from Dr. Sally Hacker, a professor in Oregon State University’s Department of Integrative Biology. She will discuss the interaction of dunes and the ocean, how the sea fertilizes dunes through the deposition of wrack, and how this relationship may be affected by the sea level rise, more intense storms and increased erosion anticipated with global warming.

The event is sponsored by Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, Haystack Rock Awareness Project, Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition, and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation & Development.
