Earth Days Activities in Plumas County
Feather River Land Trust invites everyone to participate in community events honoring our home: Planet Earth.
April is Earth Month and Plumas County certainly knows how to celebrate. Several community groups and organizations, including the land trust, have come together to offer “fellow earthlings” a variety of activities.
The headliner event for Earth Month will be on Earth Day itself, April 22. With the drought and California water woes on everyone’s mind, the Earth Days Committee selected a local film titled “Treading Water” to be shown after this year's Community Sustainability Awards.
The short film was produced by Chico State professor Dr. Jesse Dizard and is about groundwater in the North State. Following the film a panel of water experts will discuss viable solutions both at the individual level and the policy level. The main event starts at 7 p.m. at the West End Theatre in Quincy and donations to support future Earth Day activities are happily accepted.
Nature walks, restoration and a local kids celebration are planned for Monday, April 21. The kids’ event at the Alder Street Garden in Quincy features recycled crafts, seed balls and much more. And to continue the family fun, join Rob Wade and Paul Hardy with FRLT for a nature walk at the Leonhardt Learning Landscape on Wednesday, April 23.
If you like to get your hands dirty, sign up for a community stewardship project at Greenhorn Creek on April 24.
