Situated in the Sierra Nevada, just south of the Cascade Range, the Plumas is versatile in its land features, uncrowded, and enhanced by a pleasant climate. Outdoor enthusiasts are attracted year round to its many streams and lakes, beautiful deep canyons, rich mountain valleys, meadows, and lofty peaks. Come and enjoy your national forests!
The Plumas National Forest is beginning to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the designation of over-snow vehicle (OSV) use, in order to comply with Subpart C (use by over-snow vehicles) of the Forest Service’s Travel Management Rule & a settlement agreement with Snowlands Network et al. The intent of this effort is to designate National Forest System roads, trails, and areas that are open to OSV use, as well as identify snow trails available for grooming.
The Southwest Pacific Region of the Forest Service held its annual Regional Forester’s Awards celebration December 9 in Sacramento, to honor the tireless efforts of forest partners throughout the state of California. The Concow Maidu Tribe of Mooretown Rancheria earned this year’s Partnership of the Year award, presented by Randy Moore, Regional Forester for the Southwest Pacific Region.
