This event will meet at the Arcata Community Center, out front of the building. Festival headquarters will not be set up there quite yet so just look for others with binoculars and spotting scopes.

Join Rob as he looks for ONLY American Avocets before going and drinking beer at Redwood Curtain as early as possible. Ok, ok, so he WON’T only be looking for Avocets and will point out every species encountered on this trip at the Arcata Marsh. High tide is at 11:45 a.m. at the Arcata Wharf so some focus will be put on looking for shorebirds or watching the “fly off” from the foot of South I St./Klopp Lake Parking Lot. Redwood Curtain opens up at noon and we will venture over there after the trip to enjoy some of their fine craft beer and the awesome fish tacos (many other great food options, too) at LOCO Fish Company. This will be an easy all-walking trip as we gotta burn some calories before grabbing beer and tacos at noon! Expect around 50-60 species during this trip at the birdiest location in Humboldt County, which has recorded 335 species total to date! Restrooms are available at the Klopp Lake parking lot any time and the Interpretive Center after 9 am. There is definitely opportunity to use a spotting scope so bring one if you have it. You may also want to bring a reusable water bottle (or a growler for a fill at the brewery).

The Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary has accessible trails.
