Volunteers Welcome at National Public Lands Day Project in Trinidad


Volunteers can celebrate National Public Lands Day (NPLD) and help improve North Coast public lands by working on an invasive weed removal project Saturday, Sept 29, at Luffenholtz County Park in Trinidad.

Volunteers should carpool to a marked parking area at Moonstone Grill, 100 Moonstone Beach Rd. in Trinidad, to catch a shuttle to the work site. Shuttles begin running at 8:45 a.m. and work gets underway at about 9:30. Organizers urge volunteers to arrive early because parking space is limited.

The first 40 volunteers will receive National Public Lands Day t-shirts. Lunch will be provided near the work site for all volunteers when the project is completed around 1 p.m.

Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes or boots and long-sleeved shirts. The project organizers will provide tools and gloves.

The project is being organized by the Bureau of Land Management Arcata Field Office, Redwood Region Audubon, the Trinidad Coastal Land Trust and other partners in the BLM’s California Coastal National Monument.

“Redwood Region Audubon is providing lunches, and the Trinidad Rancheria is providing shuttle services,” said Lynda Roush, manager of the BLM Arcata Field Office. “We deeply appreciate their support.”

NPLD is the nation’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands. Last year more than 170,000 volunteers worked at more than 2,000 sites in every state, the District of Columbia and many U. S. territories planting trees, removing trash, building trails and clearing invasive plants. Their contributions were estimated at $17 million.
