Join the Northcoast Regional Land Trust for a birding tour and discussion at Freshwater Farms Reserve. This beautifully restored 74-acre wild and working landscape demonstrates complementary land uses, supporting both ecological enhancement and agriculture. The nature trail meanders through meadows and rich pasture land into abundant salt marsh and estuary habitat. Wood Creek runs through the property, meeting with Freshwater Slough, which is part of the larger Humboldt Bay tributary complex. More than 160 species of birds have been seen on Freshwater Farms Reserve, including hawks, waterfowl, warblers and other songbirds, and a resident Barn Owl. The walk is approximately 1 mile on a maintained trail and includes a viewing platform overlooking the restored wetland. Wear appropriate footwear– the trail may be muddy in some areas. Restrooms available. 

MEETING LOCATION: Arcata Community Center Lobby
