Thank you to Saturday's trail building volunteers!

Saturday's volunteers did some heavy lifting as they built more trails near the Panorama Court access to the Sunny Brae Tract of the Arcata Community Forest. Thank you to these amazing people, the Volunteer Trail Stewards and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program for this successful work day and the beautiful lunch afterward!
