Saturday's volunteers clear illegal campsite debris from Arcata Community Forest

Thank you to Saturday's 35 Volunteer Trail Steward, Humboldt State University and community volunteers who cleaned up a flatbed truckload of debris and trash from illegal campsites in Arcata Community Forest. The work day was a success thanks to a map of trash locations and illegal campsite remnants developed by an HSU student for a research project. Join a great group of volunteers on Saturday, March 7, as they plant native shrubs and willow sprigs along Beith and Fickle Hill Creeks. Click below for more information.
