Arcata

Located on the campus of Humboldt State University (HSU), this 4,500 square foot facility, completed in January 1997, is designed to handle 400 birds in the early stages of a spill, and is equipped with washing, rinsing, and drying rooms, veterinary treatment rooms, space for oiled bird holding, and areas for logistical support. During non-spill times, this facility, maintained by HSU staff, plays a significant role in the education of students in the Department of Wildlife at HSU.
