Plumas National Forest Supervisor Daniel Lovato and Deputy Forest Supervisor Barbara Drake invite interested members of the community to a series of informal “Meet & Greet” events, which will be held at various locations throughout the forest.
“This gives us a chance to meet you and learn about your perspectives regarding opportunities and challenges of working with the Forest Service, successful partnerships we can build on, and how we might work together most effectively,” said Lovato.
Dates, times and locations for each event are contained in the linked flyer.
The “Kid’s Creek Forest” in the eastern portion of the Delleker “T,” near Portola, CA, will soon be delineated by a fence and designated with formal signage.
The fence will protect the special area allowing students and teachers from C. Roy Carmichael Elementary School and Portola Jr./Sr. High School to safely explore a wide variety of educational resources and opportunities on the site, according to Janine Book, Acting Beckwourth District Ranger. In the next few years, the students will be involved in planning trails as well as designing interpretive signs and other projects.
The overall Children’s Forest project, announced last spring, is a partnership between the Plumas National Forest, Plumas Unified School District (PUSD), Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative, the Feather River Land Trust and the City of Portola. A Forest Service grant provided project funding.
