When: Fri., Jan. 21, 7:30 p.m. 2022
Join Friends of the Arcata Marsh (FOAM) on Friday, January 21 for a free Zoom presentation by environmental planning consultant Aldaron Laird entitled “King Tides on Humboldt Bay: A Preview of Sea Level Rise.” The lecture will start at 7:30 p.m. and can be accessed at https://humboldtstate.zoom.us/j/81524243096; Meeting ID: 815 2424 3096; Phone 669-900-6833. Aldaron has been mapping and studying Humboldt Bay (Wigi) for the last 20 years and has been active since 2010 in promoting a regional approach to sea level rise planning on the Bay. He has prepared sea level rise vulnerability assessments, co-founded the Humboldt State Sea Level Rise Initiative, and recently launched HSU’s Humboldt Sea Level Rise Public Forum. Aldaron has spent a lot of time kayaking, hiking, and photographing on Humboldt Bay, circumnavigating all 102 miles of the Bay’s shoreline. He is particularly attracted to the dynamic inter-tidal zone, the landscape of channels, mudflats, and salt marshes between the extreme King and Minus Tides. A selection of Aldaron’s photographs taken around Humboldt Bay is being shown through February at the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center. Hours are Tuesday through Sunday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. For more information, call 707-826-2359.
