Sometime in the not too distant future when you're enjoying the Beith Creek Loop of the Arcata Ridge Trail, take a moment to thank the 43 volunteers who helped build it on Saturday, June 1. These hard working people labored in the Sunny Brae Forest then enjoyed a barbecue lunch prepared by the Humboldt Fish Action Council and won raffle prizes from a host of generous donors. The next volunteer work day will be on Saturday, July 20, removing invasive plants from the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary. Please call (707) 822-8184 for more information.More about the National Trails Day work day
