Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 14, 2012 7A,. Forest, schools team up for educational program Chester and Greenville fifth-graders collect native shrub leaves on the Lassen National Forest near Humbug to determine protein levels in deer forage. Mona' Hill Staff Writer When Union Pacific agreed in July 2008 to settle the Stor- rie Fire lawsuit for $102 mil- lion, it opened the door for a unique educational project. The settlement earmarked $40 million each to Plumas and Lassen national forests for recreational, scenic, wa- tershed, wildlife and timber restoration efforts, in addition to the $22 million bill for fire suppression. Plumas Unified School Dis- trict Superintendent Glenn Harris approached Plumas National Forest officials about an educational partnership. The forest supervisors at the time -- Alice Carlton for Plumas National Forest and Kathleen Morse for Lassen National Forest- and PUSD began a long process to ham- mer out the collective mis- sion, goals and details of such a program. According to Rob Wade, who heads the school district's out- door education program and MicheleJimenez-Holtz, educa- tion liaison for the Plumas Na- ..tona] Fores tqgla!ratio  is to provice students with education, job skills and opportunities, as well as a sense of stewardship and place -- to connect them to where they live. The pilot program is in its first year, with pilot teachers developing classroom curricu- la to support natural resource learning on the Storrie Fire area. Teachers are participat- ing in after-school Learning Landscape outings with the Storrie Fire Restoration Team to develop, integrate and en- hance knowledge of the area's natural resources with state standards. As the teachers use next year, the second year in the pilot program, to develop age- appropriate lessons and pro- grams, more students -- third- graders through high school -- will take part in the pro- gram. Jimenez-Holtz and Wade see the program, slated for nine years, as a continually build- ing learning progression, in- corporating previous years' learning into the succeeding years. While funding is specifical- ly for the Storrie Fire area, Jimenez-Holtz and Wade agreed the Forest Service rec- ognizes the' implicati0ns,0: other communities, perhaps paving the way for future programs elsewhere. In summer 2011, the pro- gram provided an employ- ment opportunity for six local youth on the Student Conser- vation Association high school trail crew on the Yel- low Creek and Pacific Crest trails. Four students from Greenville and one each from Chester and Portola repaired trails, collected native plant seeds and did noxious weed eradication on the trail sys- tems. Greenville and Chester fifth-graders collected native shrub leaves during the fall to determine the protein content of deer forage. Quincy High School earth science students traveled to the Indian Jim school site for a geology and fisheries lesson in the geologi- cally rich Feather River Canyon. The Belden Quest is an ex- ample of the cross-curricular potential of the partnership's efforts. Using a "treasure hunt" format, students will follow the history of the Belden area through geophys- ical and human history to learn about the hidden histo- ry O f place. :,,le,,elden Reo'r,hpstd teachers and the Sto.rrie Fire Restoration Team in a two- Pilot teachers from Chester, Greenville and Quincy elementary schools participate in an after- school outing to plan activities for fifth-graders on the Lassen National Forest near Humbug.

In addition to questing, teachers are also developing a scientific field journaling pro- gram in conjunction with "Laws Field Guide" author and illustrator John Muir Laws for student-created field guides. With lumber donations from Sierra Pacific Industries and Collins Pine, students will design and create inter, pretive signage for Hallsted and James Lee campgrounds. The partnership clearly has educational implications for Plumas CountY;it also has the pQtental t0 prepare student s for jobar ,t attract visitors to the area. Public Health Agenc:y director resigns She thanked the supervisors for their "support and commit- ment to public health." Hall was selected by the su- pervisors in June to be the county's administrator of the drug and alcohol program. They placed her in charge of reinstituting the program that the county shut down in 2008 because of personnel and budget problems. The Alcohol & Drug department was losing hundreds of thousands of dol- lars annually, despite receiv- ing half a million dollars in state subsidies. Hall agreed to build a new program from scratch. She took on the additional duties without adding staff to the Public Health department. On Feb. 21, after Hall out- lined the progress achieved in her first six months as the alcohol and drug administra- tor, the supervisors enthusi- astically praised her for her effort. "I couldn't be more pleased," Supervisor Robert Meacher said during the meeting. "Ac- tually, I'm beyond pleased. Be- cause we are not just doing something important, we are doing it right." Hall said she expected to present a finalized plan for restoring services this month. Bringing back A&D services would mean the state would resume sending the county $500,000 in funding. In her resignation letter, Hall assured the supervisors that she was leaving "a solid foundation" from the work she started. "With this foundation in place, the future of the department will need your continued leadership and support of a transition plan that will allow for an or- derly transition and give the county time to identify my replacement," Hall wrote. Hall resigned just one day after longtime Mental Health Director John Sebold an- nounced his resignation. In a letter to her staff, Hall praised her colleagues. "Look- ing back on my 21-year career working in private industry, education, governmental and non-governmental nonprofit entities of all sizes, it is clear that the staff of this depart- ment is by far the very best."

She said in her letter to the Board of Supervisors that she would remain in her Quincy office until April 20. She will be an employee of the county until June 7. Hall has been the county's lead person in charge of bring- ing back state-sanctioned al- cohol and drug services. Two county supervisors said Monday they were upset by Hall's departure. "I'm really sorry to see her go," Supervisor Lori Simpson said. "Mimi has been a great help to this county. It's going to be a big loss." Supervisor Jon Kennedy told Hall, "Although this is a great opportunity for you, this is horrible news for citizens of our county. "I can't help but think we failed in recognizing how im- portant you were to our county and what we could have done to avoid your resignation," Kennedy added. "I am sincere- ly sorry that you had to seek opportunities elsewhere." Hall said Monday she wasn't ready to comment about her reasons for resign- ing or where she was going. MT.
