Birding by Bike

Once a year Arcata offers GODWIT DAYS, a birding festival that lasts nearly a week. This year the festival added a new event: Birding by Bike.

It works pretty much the way you would expect: bike a little, bird a little. Bring binoculars.

The Arcata Bottoms, a marsh land between the ocean and the town, is a great place to bike--and bird. Egrets are happening on almost any day of the year.
