Get Involved

There are several ways students can get involved with the campus and the local community.

**Please note that Humboldt clubs are not meeting in-person to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. For off-campus organizations, please contact them directly.

Center Activities

A department of the University Center that provides aquatic outdoor, recreational, experiences to Cal Poly Humboldt students and the surrounding community at the Recreation & Wellness Center, the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center, and the Student Recreation Center.

Marine Debris Program

The goal of Humboldt’s Marine Debris Program is to get students involved with keeping the oceans healthy and clean. The program has regular beach cleanups where students and community members are encouraged to get out on the beaches to find and record trash. In addition to regular cleanups, the program provides a venue for community members and students alike to record the debris they find on local beaches in an official capacity.

Marine Wildlife Care Center

The Marine Wildlife Care Center cares for oiled seabirds in the event of a spill along California's North Coast. The center is a 4,500-square-foot facility on the Cal Poly Humboldt campus.  If a spill is large enough to exceed its trained personnel's ability to respond, MWCC will call for community and student volunteers. 

Northcoast Environmental Center

The Northcoast Environmental Center’s mission is to promote the understanding of the relations between people and the biosphere and to conserve, protect, and celebrate terrestrial, aquatic, and marine ecosystems of northern California and southern Oregon.

Redwood Region Audubon Society

A chapter of the National Audubon Society, the Redwood Region Audubon Society is a volunteer nonprofit that encompasses Humboldt, Del Norte and western Trinity Counties in north west California.

Surfrider Foundation 

The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network. Contact the Humboldt Chapter for more information.
