   These are a few of the stories you will find in this week's printed newspaper:

  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.
  • Moving on: Just days after Plumas District Hospital announced that it couldn’t take over Quincy Nursing & Rehabilitation, several residents of the facility have found new homes.

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.
