David Couch will lead a low-tide canoe/kayak interpretive tour of the California State Oyster Preserve that starts from the Arcata Marsh on Saturday, June 25. David is a wastewater treatment plant operator for the City of Arcata and a founding member of Friends of the Arcata Marsh (FOAM). FOAM members in good standing can attend the event for free, while non-members must join on the spot to come along. Meet at 8 a.m. at the entrance to the City’s Corporation Yard/Wastewater Treatment Plant on South G Street, south of the Interpretive Center parking lot. Participants must bring their own canoe or kayak (no rafts), a flotation vest, and sign a liability waiver. The tour is expected to last 3 to 4 hours, depending on whether participants want to also paddle up Janes Creek. Those who are not currently FOAM members should bring exact change or a check payable to “FOAM.” Annual dues are $18 for students and seniors, $25 for individuals, and $35 for families. For more information, call David at (707) 499-6758.
