City of Arcata
ARCATA – The City of Arcata’s Environmental Services Department, Friends of the Arcata Marsh (FOAM) and Humboldt Pet Supply are seeking volunteers to assist with cleaning up the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome, including families. Work will include walking the marsh trails and picking up trash and pet waste left behind.
To keep things fun during the cleanup, Humboldt Pet Supply has put together a painted rock hunt for cleanup volunteers.
Participants will have the opportunity to win various prizes from local businesses, including HeartBead, Finnish Country Sauna and Tubs, SCRAP Humboldt, Lost Coast Roast, People’s Records, Beneficial Living Center and Plaza Arcata by finding painted rocks that will be hidden in the marsh.
Participants are asked to meet at 10 a.m. at the marsh parking lot, located at 569 South G St. in Arcata. All are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy refreshments and snacks before embarking on the cleanup adventure.
For more information, please call Humboldt Pet Supply at (707) 633-6216.
