Baylands King Tides Schedule for Winter 2017-18

Baylands King Tides Schedule for Winter 2017-18

Attention bird watchers, paddlers, windsurfers and general water fanciers!

King tides are the highest tides of the season, usually in the winter. You can see these high tides in the Palo Alto Baylands. When the water is high and flooding the marsh, normally reclusive bird species move up out of the plants and can be more easily seen by binoculars or scopes. You might also be lucky enough to see bat rays, harbor seals, or other interesting species. And it's just plain interesting to see what the Baylands looks like when the water level is so high.
