Citizen Science

Come and take photos to help us understand the changing tides in Richardson Bay.  Located along the bay shoreline a half-mile south of Tamalpais High School, the new SLR monitoring station at Bothin Marsh encourages "citizen science," where you can become involved in gathering data.

Citizen scientists take photos of the shoreline from the station's fixed platform and upload them onto social media sites with the hashtag #MarinSLR.  Project staff can then utilize the image library as evidence of changing shoreline conditions.

The project is a collaborative effort with the County's Department of Public Works (DPW), Community Development Agency (CDA), Marin County Parks, and is funded through a grant from the State Coastal Conservancy.
