Last Saturday for the July Peace Project, the office staff and a couple of friends set out to the Manila Dunes for an awesome morning. With the help of Justin from Friends of the Dunes, we were able to do some restoration on the dunes. Beach grass is an invasive species on the dunes, harming the ecosystem around it, so we went out to help and remove some of it.
For the month of August, we will be helping make lanterns at the Arcata Farmer’s Market, in memory of the victims of the U.S bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki 68 years ago. Later in the evening, the lantern ceremony will take place at the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary. Communities around the nation partake in this similar event. We urge you to look into it, and maybe take part in.
