Invasive Plant Removal
Partnering with the City of Arcata, FOAM co-sponsors at least three invasive plant removal and trash pickup days at the Marsh each year, as well as other, less formal opportunities to improve the Marsh. For notification of these and other upcoming events, scroll to the bottom of the page and subscribe to our email list.
In 2011, FOAM responded to destruction of a memorial bench at the Marsh by establishing a reward fund for those who report tips that lead to successful prosecution of lawbreakers. Up to $250 is paid for information given to the Arcata Police Department that results in conviction for vandalism, destruction of public property, or similar illegal acts.
