Volunteers Pitch in at Point Arena, Stornetta Public Lands
A group about 30 volunteers and BLM staff pitched in to improve the Point Arena and Stornetta Public Lands in a volunteer hike and project day organized by the California Wilderness Coalition Saturday, Nov. 3.
The event, supported by the Point Arena Gateway Committee and the Point Arena Lighthouse Keepers, took place on a picture-perfect day overlooking the California Coastal National Monument.
