Volunteer Restoration Work on the South Fork Smith River

Many thanks to the Humboldt State University Natural Resources Club for spending the weekend of Sep. 15-16 on the South Fork Smith River property managed by Siskiyou Land Conservancy. Club members (all 18 of them!) cleared nearly a mile of trail along old skid roads to allow restoration crews access to hillside thinning units, and they practiced peeling Douglas fir poles to construct shelters on the site (so that, this winter, restoration crews can get out of the rain on occasion). The Natural Resources Club provides an incredible service to our communities, and it is much appreciated. Thank you!
