Re: “City to Bayshore Mall homeless: It’s time to move on” (Times-Standard, April 21, Page A1). Humboldt Baykeeper and our volunteers were just out at Palco Marsh over Earth Day week­end, where we worked with New Directions and home­less campers to clean out about 30 cubic yards of trash and waste. We recognize that there’s a real need to protect the public, habitat, and water quality at many of our unsupervised urban open spaces such as Palco Marsh, but we also hope that environmentalists, social service organizations and government will come together to find compassion­ate and lasting solutions to the deep and tragic problem of homelessness.
