Wetlands & Creeks 

Arcata's wetlands and creeks are managed to optimize fish and wildlife habitat, public use, recreation, and water quality to fulfill aspects of Arcata’s Creeks Management Plan and the City Municipal Code dealing with erosion and sediment control.


Want to volunteer to support Arcata's wetlands and creeks? Join the city during a restoration workday and be a steward to Arcata's natural resources. No experience is necessary, only a willingness to pitch in. Visit the City's volunteer work day webpage for more information! 

You can also discover how to identify and address invasive species to help maintain a balanced and thriving environment in our city here!
