Humboldt Redwoods Interpretive Association Hosting Earth Day Cleanup at Usal Beach Campground

This is a press release from the Humboldt Redwoods Interpretive Association:

Hello Usal Family and Friends,

We are planning Earth Day at Usal Beach Campground– 10 AM to 3 PM Saturday April 21st.  We have a number of projects we’d like to work on, small and large, easy and hard, detail focused and casual.  Everybody is invited for lunch. . . even if you just stop by and pick up a garbage bag to take with you out to the beach.

We also need a couple of volunteers to help with “check-in” at the Shady Dell meadow, serve lunch and keep the communication going between the various work crews. If you want to help with these tasks, please contact us.


Trash pick up and one trash pit to clean out.

Road ditch to clean out.

Invasive Weeds-

·         Cut Ivy

·         Cut Himalayan Blackberry

·         Cut and Bag Pampas Grass Seed Heads

Clean out Campfire Rings.

Clean Outhouses.

Post Outhouse Maps.

Observe wildlife including Steelhead in Creeks.

If you have a favorite hand tool—gloves, pruners, a garden shovel—please bring it.

If you think you’ll be coming, let us know.

Bruce Hilbach-Barger and Carla Thomas,
