Lecture on Examining Early-Day East Arcata Bay

Local historian Jerry Rohde will examine the major changes of the bayside area between Daniels Slough and Eureka Slough. He’ll look at the long-time presence of the Wiyot Tribe; the diking of the shoreline in the 1890s and early 1900s; and the development of ranchlands, small communities, and transportation corridors between the shoreline and Old Arcata Road. The presentation will feature several dozen full-color historical photos and maps as it provides a historical context for dealing with the challenges to the bay shore posed by sea level rise. Sponsored by Friends of the Arcata Marsh. In person and on Zoom.
