Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary

Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary

The 307-acre Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary features 5.4 miles of walking and biking paths and an Interpretive Center.

The Sanctuary supports a variety of habitat types, including salt marsh, freshwater ponds and marshes, grassy uplands, tidal mudflats, and brackish marshes.

Dogs are allowed, however they must be on a sturdy leash that is under 6-feet long. Leashes protect dogs from becoming lost and from disturbing sensitive habitat and wildlife. Make sure you carry a plastic bag when walking pets and be sure to pick up after them.
