It’s going to be a big year for the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy. The first big announcement of the year in regard to the theatre came March 6. After 142 years of retaining ownership of the Town Hall Theatre and its previous incarnations, the Town Hall Association gave up ownership to Plumas Arts.

With the building owned in full by her organization, Plumas Arts director Roxanne Valladao told Feather Publishing last week it may be time to step up the theatre’s visual and audio components to stay on par with technological advances.

Genny Wilson has been deputy supervisor of the Plumas National Forest for just three months. But she already knows the lay of the land — every square mile of it.

As a crew leader tasked with finding spotted owls in 1990, Wilson literally hiked through the entire forest.

“Our job was to find those gaps where people had never looked before for owls,” Wilson said. “We looked at the good habitat — older, mature forests — but we also looked at areas where people really didn’t predict owls. There were no constraints on where we could go.”

Thanks in part to her research as a biologist on the Plumas, and later the Tahoe National Forest, the California spotted owl is the only spotted owl not on the endangered species list.
