Thank you to Saturday's 30 Arcata Community Forest campsite cleanup volunteers!

03.22.14 ACF illegal campsite volunteer work day

The City sends out a big thank you to the 30 volunteers from the Volunteer Trail Stewards, Humboldt State University, and Sonoma State University's Join Us Making Progress program who helped restore chronic, illegal campsites in the Arcata Community Forest on Saturday. The volunteers hauled out 4 cubic yards of trash, scarified the compacted ground, planted sword ferns, then went on to clear English ivy and maintain trails in the Forest. The next volunteer work day will be on Saturday, March 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Arcata Elementary School. Volunteers will help construct an interpretive nature trail and remove non-native, invasive species from Sunset Creek. Call 707.825-2163 for more information.
