[ARCHIVED] Fight Back Cordgrass at the Arcata Marsh Tomorrow

A Spartina Infested Marsh

Battle the Spartina Invasion at the Arcata Marsh on Saturday, September 10

The City of Arcata’s Environmental Services Department, Redwood Community Action Agency and People for Pickleweed invite you to help fight back invasive spartina grass in the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, September 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at the South G Street parking lot of the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center.

Participants will remove Spartina densiflora, or cordgrass, that aggressively crowds out native marsh plants such as pickleweed and eliminates important foraging habitat for shorebirds. Be sure to wear a long sleeve shirt, work pants and boots and bring rain gear and water. Gloves, tools, snacks and beverages will be provided.
