Arcata Community Forest VTS Workday

April 22, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dear Fantastic Volunteers,
I hope that you will consider joining us for next Saturday’s work day, April 22.  It is Earth Day . . . in case you need an extra reason to attend.  We’ll be working in the Shay Park area from 9 am – 12 (noon). We’ll be picking up trash, weed eating the grass along the Bay Trail North, clipping blackberry growth, and more.  Should be more than enough for everyone!  We work rain or shine.
I encourage you to bring your own gloves and water . . . and parking is often complicated here.  The best options are on the north side of Foster but those are limited (see the map).
I may be able to provide a simple sandwich lunch again.  It was nice to do that for the March work day and have volunteer linger afterwards (like pre-COVID times). I would encourage you to bring water and your own gloves (I have my usual supply of gloves).

It is nice to know how many volunteers are coming so that I can better prepare tasks and tools. It would be great if you RSVP to me at hughes@humboldt.edu
I hope to see many of you on the 22rd!  Thanks!  Questions welcome . . .
Bay Trail News:
The lowest responsive bid for construction of the Humboldt Bay Trail South project, from McCullough Construction, is within the available funding.  Construction could start as early as May if there are no complications.  The project is expected to require two construction seasons to complete . . . so it would be 2024 before it would be finished.
