UPDATE: The Fall Fest has been cancelled per a press release from the Plumas National Forest Supervisor’s Office.
All are welcome to celebrate autumn and the outdoors with family entertainment and fun-filled educational activities for children, young and old, at Plumas National Forest’s 10th annual Fall Fest. The free event will be held Saturday, Oct. 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mt. Hough Ranger District, 39696 Highway 70 outside of Quincy.
Plumas District Hospital will hold its annual fall low-cost health screening during the second week of October. The low-cost health screening will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. beginning Monday, Oct. 7, and running through Thursday, Oct. 10, in the North Fork Family Medicine Building on Valley View Road behind the hospital.
Nonessential operations are in the process of being shut down on the Plumas National Forest, due to a lapse in federal appropriations as of October 1, 2013.
Effective today, most staff have been furloughed pending reinstatement of funding by Congress. These staff will not be available by phone or email, and cannot carry out work for the Agency, until funding is restored. This means that many services will be delayed or interrupted. Activities such as the Fall Fest, scheduled for October 5, are cancelled. All offices are closed.
Staffs that remain on the PNF include all fire fighters, law enforcement, those necessary to oversee emergency salvage operations, district rangers and the deputy and forest supervisors.
Visitors may continue to enjoy traveling on forest system roads and trails, cut firewood with a permit, hunt and camp, among other activities. All campgrounds without gates are open although services are curtailed.
Community members with disabilities, with the help of the Feather River Chapter of Trout Unlimited, will reel in a great time Oct. 5 at Greenhorn Ranch.
Trout Unlimited is a community-based program that devotes its time to community outreach. In keeping with a long-standing tradition, Trout Unlimited will team up with the ALIVE program, administrated by Plumas Rural Services, which helps train and support people with developmental disabilities and special needs.
