Document Description
The city of Eureka proposes to restore and enhance estuary and inter-tidal wetland habitats on approx 114 acres adjacent to Elk River. The project would enhance and restore approx: 78 acres of salt marsh, 13 acres of riparian habitat, and 13 acres of inter-tidal channels, which may provide nearly ten acres of valuable Eelgrass (Zostera marina) habitat. The city also proposes to enhance public access to Elk River and Humboldt Bay with an approx 1 mile extension of its Class 1 ADA Waterfront Trail, and the construction of a non-motorized boat launch, several causeways and viewing platforms, and a trail head parking area off Tooby Rd. The project may also create approx 2.8 miles of navigable channels connected to Elk River Slough.
