Welcome to California's North Coast

With free-flowing rivers, rugged mountain ranges, and rural towns surrounded by open ranges, dairy farms, redwood forests, wild salmon runs and cackling geese, the North Coast region is considered one of the last best places on the planet.

The Northcoast Regional Land Trust is a nonprofit organization with a focus of protecting land and water on nearly five million acres on California’s North Coast encompassing Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity Counties. Find out more About us.

Birding at Freshwater Farms Reserve for Godwit Days

Join Northcoast Regional Land Trust staff Connie Low and Biologist with Point Blue Conservation Science Kate Howard for a birding tour and discussion at Freshwater Farms Reserve. This beautifully restored 74 acre wild and working landscape demonstrates complementary land uses, supporting both ecological enhancement and agriculture. The newly built nature trail meanders through meadows and rich pastureland into abundant salt marsh and estuary habitat. Wood Creek runs through the property meeting with Freshwater Slough, which is part of the larger Humboldt Bay tributary complex. More than 76 species of birds have been seen on Freshwater Farms Reserve, including hawks, waterfowl, warblers and other songbirds, and a resident barn owl. Walk is approximately one mile on a maintained trail and includes a viewing platform overlooking the restored wetland. Please wear appropriate footwear – trail may be muddy in some areas.
