|"Chasing the Waves:" King Tide Photo Exhibit|
The Sarasota and Tampa Bay Estuary Programs are sponsoring a traveling photo exhibit this summer that will showcase the high water levels associated with annual extreme high, or "King Tides." The photo exhibit is intended to raise awareness of the impacts of rising seas associated with climate change on our shorelines and communities.
Local images from a joint King Tide Photo Contest held in 2012 by the two Estuary Programs are included in the exhibit, along with photos from Australia, California and small Pacific Island nations, showing the global significance of sea level rise.
The exhibit, called "Chasing The Waves," has been touring the area since Summer 2013. Its final stop is throughout July 2014 at the Manatee County Central Library, 1301 Barcarrota Boulevard West in Bradenton.
