Join us for an Ivy Bash at Luffenholtz County Park, September 29th from 9am-1pm.

Trinidad Gateway to the California Coastal National Monument is celebrating National Public Lands Day with an Ivy Bash to benefit the native plants and animals of the Trinidad area. Trinidad Gateway partners, (California Department of Fish & Game, California State Parks, City of Trinidad, Coastwalk California, Humboldt State University Marine Laboratory, Redwood Region Audubon Society, Trinidad Coastal Land Trust, Trinidad Museum Society, Trinidad Rancheria, Tsurai Ancestral Society and the Yurok Tribe), are working together to remove nonnative plants from the Houda Point area. The presence of these non-native species reduces the area's natural diversity, biological integrity and aesthetics. The first 40 volunteers to arrive will receive a free t-shirt.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to your public lands and to get out and recreate.

So mark your calendar and don’t miss National Public Lands Day in Trinidad, Saturday September 29, 2012!
