Volunteers Plant 1,500 Native Trees at Arcata Restoration Project

With the labor of 59 volunteers and funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the City of Arcata and the Humboldt Fish Action Council planted 1,500 native willow, spruce, alder and cottonwood trees along North Jacoby Creek and Fickle Hill Creek. Both creeks are part of the larger Baylands Restoration Project located between Highway 101 and Old Arcata Road. The volunteers accomplished this impressive feat during just two Saturday mornings in March and April.
