Document Description
On June 7, 2018 approx. 800 grade school students from Humboldt County will travel by bus to the Eel River WA to participate in dune restoration activities to promote ocean conservation as part of a statewide event (Ocean Day). Prior to event, docents from Friends of the Dunes will visit participating classrooms to educate the students about dune ecology, restoration and logistics for the event. Upon arriving at the Eel River WA, students will be accompanied by a BLM staff person and Friends of the Dunes docent to their school's plot to hand pull invasive European beach grass. Parking and restrooms will be located on Table Bluff County Park. The County of Humboldt has issued a Special Event Permit. BLM and Friends of the Dunes will set up the site one day before the event and thoroughly clean up the area following the event. The general public is still allowed to visit the Eel River Wildlife Area beyond the immediate event area. Beach grass removal will occur on state land, south of Table Bluff County Park.
