Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary Weekly Walks
All our regular, weekly guided walks at the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary meet at the end of South I Street (Klopp Lake) in Arcata for easy-to-walk trails and an opportunity to view a diverse range of species. The group gathers at 8:30 am and the walk ends at about 11:00 am.

Bring your binoculars and meet your trip leader to see a beautiful view of Humboldt Bay and a diverse range of shorebirds, migratory songbirds and raptors, and resident birds likely engaging in breeding activities. Keep an eye out for otters and otter signs as they frequent the marsh ponds.

Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge

Sunday, July 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Meet leader Ralph Bucher at the Visitor Center for this two-mile walk along a wide, flat trail that is packed gravel and easily accessible. Just outside of town, this refuge offers astounding and easy access to tidally-influenced habitats including mudflats, riparian vegetation, conifers, and a bay that hosts a variety of geese, raptors, shorebirds, and waders.

Eureka Waterfront Trail

Sunday, July 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

This relatively urban trail offers the potential to observe species abundance and diversity compared to many more remote locations. Watch out for cormorants, loons, grebes, and even otters diving for their meals in the bay alongside the trail. This walk is on a flat, paved trail that is wheelchair accessible.
