The Plumas County Library is providing free books for youth up to 18 years old. They invite all children in the county to pick up a page to decorate at their local library or print a copy form the Library webpage https://plumascounty.us/2672/COVID-19. The kids can decorate the hat and mittens as they see fit with whatever supplies they have on hand. Then they can return it to their local library during curbside hours and receive a free book of their choice. Each day children may pick up a new page and return it for a free book. One page per day equals one book per day. Coloring pages can be picked up beginning Dec. 1 and can be returned between Dec. 7 and Dec. 31. County Librarian Lindsay Fuchs is hoping that everyone will take advantage of this giveaway. The books are new and with a wide variety of types and titles to choose from.
Now through Jan. 16
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is offering free swan tours in Yuba County near Marysville on select Saturdays, November through January. The total tour, round trip, is less than 225 miles, 100 down and 100 back up. Held in partnership with the Mathews Rice farming operation, this area – called District 10 – boasts the largest number of overwintering tundra swans in the Central Valley as well as abundant geese, ducks, shorebirds and raptors. These popular, naturalist-led tours last approximately two hours and have been reconfigured to meet current COVID-19-related health and safety protocols. These safety measures include all participants and guides driving their own vehicles instead of carpooling together. Walkie talkies will be distributed to each participant vehicle to hear and communicate with the guide during the tour. Participants are required to follow all health protocols, which will be distributed upon registration. The tour dates are: Nov. 28, Dec. 5, 12 and 19, 2020; Jan. 2, 9 and 16, 2021. Tours are offered at 9:30 a.m. and at 1 p.m. on each date. Pre-registration is required by contacting Genelle Treaster, CDFW North Central Region, at [email protected]
