Join us on Tuesday, February 12 at UP North Surf Club from 7-9pm for the Surfrider Portland February Chapter Meeting! These meetings are free and open to the public.

Our guest speaker is Meg Reed, Coastal Shores Specialist at the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development. Every year in early winter, high tides in Oregon are higher than usual; we call these extreme high tide events “King Tides.” These tides are being documented by citizens in Oregon and around the world to help visualize and understand the impacts of sea level rise (like flooding and erosion) in the coming decades. These are especially important to document in the winter when storm surge and high winds and waves are more frequent, creating even higher water levels. Meg will discuss the history of the project, how citizens can get involved, and what kinds of interesting photos we’ve seen over time. To find out more about the Oregon King Tides Photo Project, visit oregonkingtides.net.

Meg Reed is the Coastal Shores Specialist for Oregon’s Coastal Management Program based in Newport, OR. This position provides support to cities, counties, and state agencies on land use planning for coastal hazards. She leads coastal resilience projects with communities to address various natural hazards, including tsunami, and provides input on development proposals and permits affecting beach and dune areas. Meg also coordinates Oregon’s King Tides Photo Project. Meg’s educational background is in marine science, natural resource management, and science communication.
