Enter our King Tides Photo Contest

King tides are the highest of the high tides and are the best way to visualize what our shoreline will look like in the future as sea levels start to rise.  These pictures will be used to help raise awareness of the impacts of Sea Level Rise to our Oceans, Waves and Beaches.

Ideal photos will depict the ocean encroaching on man-made structures like roads, seawalls and buildings.

Some good examples of pictures can be found at:
