You can support FOAM and the Marsh in several ways: become a FOAM member, volunteer, or donate to FOAM. In fact, you can do all three, and many people do.
FOAM membership categories range from Senior/Student ($18/year) to Best Friend ($100/year). They include Individual ($25/year), Family ($35/year), and Sponsor ($50/year). Members contributing a cumulative $750 are listed as Life Members on a plaque in the Interpretive Center.
Member benefits include the quarterly newsletter UPWIND, invitations to members-only events and the annual meeting/volunteer appreciation lunch, the chance to vote for board candidates (or become one yourself!), and the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting environmental education and community outreach at our beloved Marsh.
Download the membership application, fill it out, include a check for the appropriate membership level, and mail it to FOAM (PO Box 410, Arcata CA, 95518) or drop it off at the Interpretive Center.
