Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 9A This photo from 1971 shows Dale Wren, the president of Feather River College at the time, present a plaque of appreciation to Ruth Dellinger, her son Bob and grandson David for deeding the college a parcel of land for educational use. File photo POND, from page 8A This semester's class has been going out to the pond every week. Now that the pond is accessible, DeRuiter and her class are starting to explore what opportunities the land has to offer. DeRuiter split the possible opportunities for the land's use into four major areas the class is considering: education, recreation, restoration and wildlife habitat. As an outdoor educational facility, the pond would mainly be used for observing wildlife. "It's a great field lab because of the wetlands, vegetation, the frogs and waterfowl there," DeRuiter noted. "And there's the recreational opportunities for birding and ice skating-- if we have a cold enough winter." Restoration projects the class is considering mainly involve clearing weeds around the pond, allowing native vegetation to grow. DeRuiter listed several reasons the area could be utilized as wildlife habitat. In fact, DeRuiter said, in some ways it already is. "It's shadowy, there's a muddy bottom and there's a lot of waterfowl. Sometimes when we went we saw a couple hundred ducks there. Sometimes a couple dozen. We've been keeping a running tally of the number of birds and species we've seen." In addition to birds, the class has seen deer, evidence of beavers, muskrats, foxes, skunks and lots of frogs. "We're brainstorming ideas right now," said DeRuiter. "All these ideas could work together." The class plans to hold a public meeting sometime in April to share ideas with the community and gather information. "We haven't made any decisions," DeRuiter stressed. "We're very much at the formative stage and would be very interested to hear from the public." Ultimately, the class plans to make a presentation with a recommendation to the college's board of trustees at the end of the semester. Despite the no-trespassing signs hung around the edge of the property, people are invited to respectfully visit the site over the next few months to check out the recently created access. Dogs are not allowed. Information on public meetings pertaining to Dellinger's Pond will be announced as dates and times become available.
