Feather River Land Trust turns 15 years old today, Feb. 18. Since February 2000 FRLT reports it has been at the forefront of conserving priority landscapes in the Feather River Watershed and in providing nature-based education for children.

The conservation efforts have protected working ranches, maintained a place to live for a diverse population of plants and animals, increased recreational opportunities for residents and visitors, protected water quantity and quality and helped to conserve fantastic views. In addition, natural areas around each school in the watershed have been set aside so teachers and students have outdoor classrooms far into the future.

The two-part public meeting hosted by Plumas County District 3 Supervisor Sherrie Thrall on Wednesday, Feb. 11, drew a crowd so large that attendees not only filled chairs and lined the walls around the room but jammed the lobby entrance of the Chester Memorial Hall as well.

Most of the attendees were opposed to the proposed installation of thermal curtains on Lake Almanor and Butt Lake as well as the drawdown of any cold water from Lake Almanor.

The meeting was held in two parts, with Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s director of hydro licensing-power generation, Alvin Thoma, speaking first about PG&E’s relicensing of the Upper North Fork Feather River Project 2105. Add a comment
