02.15.14 McDaniel Slough volunteer work day

There were 30 volunteers representing AmeriCorps, the Humboldt Fish Action Council, Six Rivers National Forest, the Friends of the Arcata Marsh, California Conservation Corps Fortuna Center and the HSU Natural Resources Club at the February 15, 2014 volunteer work day at the McDaniel Slough Restoration Site. Volunteers planted 1,500 willow sprigs on the north side of the freshwater ponds and 40 Sitka spruce adjacent to the freshwater ponds and along the south side of Allen Pond. They also removed three cubic yards of trash from an illegal camping area adjacent to Johnson Industries and the railroad tracks and removed invasive plants from the marsh on South I Street.

Doug Kelly and the Humboldt Fish Action Council once again provided tools, food and beverages for the project with Kevin Palm and Willie Clancy from AmeriCorps organizing the workday to fulfill the requirements for their individual service projects. Thank you, everyone, for a great day of work!
