FR26 Freshwater Farms Reserve trail
Time - 8:15 am - 12:15 pm
Trip Leader(s): Kate Howard & Connie Low
Join Northcoast Regional Land Trust staff Connie Low and Biologist with Point Blue Conservation Science Kate Howard 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 newly built nature trail meanders through meadows and rich pastureland 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 76 species of birds have been seen on Freshwater Farms Reserve, including hawks, waterfowl, warblers and other songbirds, and a resident barn owl. Walk is approximately one mile on a maintained trail and includes a viewing platform overlooking the restored wetland. Please wear appropriate footwear – trail may be muddy in some areas.
