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!
Quincy, CA – January 12, 2017 – The Milsap Bar road (Forest Service road #22N62), has been temporarily closed in two locations making Milsap Bar campground & river access (northern Butte County) completely inaccessible; there is no alternate access.
For 38 northern California youngsters, the holiday season began with a trip to the forest. These students participated in the annual Proyecto Navidad, an educational field trip led by the Feather River Ranger District of the Plumas National Forest.
“This had to be the most fun I had on a project all year,” said Jackie Pope, the Acting Assistant Resource Officer on the district. “Proyecto Navidad unites the Forest Service’s shared values of diversity and natural resource conservation.”
Proyecto Navidad is the result of a partnership between the Plumas National Forest and the Butte County Office of Migrant Education, along with the Harmony Health Medical Clinic and Family Resource Center. The students live in Central Valley communities such as Oroville, Chico, Colusa, and Gridley.
