All over Mendocino County

All over Mendocino County

This article is about Coastal Cleanup Day in 2021. Coastal Cleanup Day for 2022 will be on Saturday, September 17.

General Coastal Cleanup Day info from the California Coastal Commission can be found here: coastalcleanupday.org. Details about 2022 cleanup sites in Mendocino County will be posted in summer 2022. If you would like to host a site or have questions about how you can get involved please email info@mendocinolandtrust.org.

—-

Over the last 17 years, Mendocino County has had 5,000 volunteers to remove almost 60,000 pounds of trash and 9,000 pounds of recyclables! The Mendocino Land Trust is proud to coordinate sites for Mendocino County and grateful to our partnering organizations that have committed to hosting cleanup sites on September 18, 2021. Please mark the day on your calendar and come out and lend a hand to “protect your happy place.”

There are 15 Coastal Cleanup events happening in Mendocino County on September 18 — most are seeking volunteers like YOU! Keep reading for details about who/what/where/when. You know the WHY – keeping our creeks, rivers, beaches and ocean as clean and safe as possible!

Won’t be in Mendocino County on Sept. 18? There are cleanup events all over California! View an interactive map provided by the California Coastal Commission to find a site near you.

The Mendocino Land Trust would like to extend big thanks to MendoRecycle for providing a grant to help cover staff time spent coordinating this event and Waste Management‘s Fort Bragg office for facilitating dumpster donation!

Unless otherwise noted, no RSVP is needed – just show up the day of the event ready to help! Site captains will be able to provide supplies but if you have a bucket, trash grabber or gloves you can bring this helps cut down on the amount of waste generated by the event. Bring a refillable water bottle and a mask for times when social distancing may not be possible.

Busy on Saturday? One group has opted to do their cleanup on Monday… join them then if you would like.

Additionally, big THANKS to school groups planning their own cleanup events in celebration of Coastal Cleanup Day! (Participation in these events is limited to those invited by the organizing school group)

  • Fort Bragg Middle School plans to clean up Pudding Creek Beach
  • Teacher Erin Brazill and TLC students from FBUSD will be cleaning up the Westport Beaches
  • Pacific Community Charter School will take on Moat Creek Beach, the Stornetta Lands and more

Conservation Conversations: Rails and Redwoods
Rails and Redwoods / Thursday, February 25 / 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. via Zoom

See the recorded presentation on YouTube: https://youtu.be/TbIp-CLBlZA

The Mendocino Land Trust is excited to launch a series of Zoom “Conservation Conversations” in 2021. These are free talks for our supporters and community members. Attend via Zoom from the comfort of your home using your smartphone, computer or tablet.

Our very first CONSERVATION CONVERSATION will be presented by MLT’s own Lawrence Turner:

Rails and Redwoods: A brief history of local railroads and their influence on conservation in Mendocino County
Presented by Lawrence Turner, Senior Land Acquisition Project Manager

Thursday, February 25

7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. via Zoom

Come join Larry Turner, a sixth-generation Fort Bragg resident and avid train enthusiast, as he talks about conservation on lands that were once dominated by railroads and the logging industry. Larry will touch on the history of the Caspar Southfork and Eastern Railroad and its path along and impact on Hare Creek and Bunker Gulch. Larry will also explore the history of Crowley, a stop along the Skunk Line that was once a logging camp and is now surrounded by conserved land held by the Mendocino Land Trust.

Larry is an entertaining dinner party guest, so we encourage you to bring your dinner – participants will be on mute until a Q&A after the presentation. If you don’t turn on your video no one will see you chewing! Type your questions in the chat at any time, and we’ll save them up for Larry to answer after the featured presentation.

Want to attend but unsure how Zoom works? Email amy@mendocinolandtrust.org for light tech support.
