Photo submitted Stewardship recognizecl nationally Carolyn Shipp Staff Writer The effort of the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship has been recognized nationally and the trail development group's youth program is now officially an award-winning program. The California Trails and Greenways Conference Foundation honored the Storrie Student Trail Program with a Merit Award for Kids and Trails at the foundation's conference in Palm Springs on April 9. Stewardship Executive Director Grog Williams received the award on behalf of the stewardship. "It's just a huge confirmation to us that we are doing something right," said Stewardship Trail Programs Director Tara Stone. According to the foundation's criteria, the award honors an agency or individual "that established an innovative program ... specifically designed to engage children and youth in outdoor experiences using trails." The Storrie Student Trail Program exemplifies the criteria. The program offers high school students an opportunity to restore the trails that were affected by 2000 Storrie Fire. According to Stone, the students spend six weeks in the wilderness repairing the trails. They receive medical certifications, outdoor survival and trail construction experience, and tool and machinery certifications. Often, they are hired by the stewardship after they have finished their tenure with the project. According to Stone, with the effective leadership of the three crew leaders, Cody Clayton, Morgan Koons and Mandy Beatty, and the collaboration with the Plumas National Forest, the program is flourishing, and more students are vying for the chance to participate. "This program is something that has evolved out of our growing sense of community," Stone wrote in a blog on the stewardship's website. "It ties our desire to see better, more carefully built and planned trails in with our goal of hiring and training a local workforce."

Specific vegetation man- agement projects planned within the tim- bered portions of its service area include but are not limited to, Chandler Road, the Cromberg area, Spring Garden area, Graeagle, and Calpine. We will also be inspecting for trees and other vegetation in proximity to the power lines as required by the California Public Resource Code Section 4293. Trees that come in contact with power lines are a major cause of outages on our system. PSREC strives to strike a healthy balance between our appreciation for trees and our obligation to provide safe, reliable electric service. Through our tree trimming program, we redirect tree growth away from power lines and remove any damaged or diseased trees so we can limit potential damage to the power lines which could be caused by extreme weather conditions. If a tree grows too fast or if its proximity to power lines is a threat to our electric system, our experts will trim the growth away from our equipment. Our vegetation management is conducted following best management prac- tices defined in ANSI A300 Part 7 (ANSI 2012) and the ISA companion publication to the ANSI A300 Standards (ISA 2007). Currently PSREC is doing a comprehensive mapping/inspection project that encompass- es the entire service area. These inspec- tions are part of our ongoing work to provide our members with safe, reliable electric ser- vice. We will be inspecting electrical equip- ment as required by California General Orders 95 and 128 and determining the location and condition of our infrastructure. PSREC personnel require access to all of its facilities including meters. PSREC employ- ees will have company ID with them.

This field trip was part of the many opportunities Upward Bound offers students to help them explore college options and expand their cultural experiences. Students were shown around th UNR campus by Bryon Hutchins, a Quincy High School graduate currently studying engineering at UNR. Bryn answered many questions about the university in. general and shared his experience as an engineering student at UNR coming from Plumas County. Students also participated in a docent-led tour of the Nevada Museum of Art where they got to see original works by Marurice Sendak, author, artist and illustrator of the well-known children's book, "Where the Wild Things Are." They also viewed iconic landscape paintings by Tahoe artist Phyllis Shafer, and American realist paintings by Patricia Chidlaw. Upward Bound students not only get to go on college and cultural field trips, but also attend weekly lunch meetings at their high schools where they learn about everything having to do with college preparation. During a recent Upward Bound lunch meeting, students explored community college and university catalogs to get a feel for classes students take in different majors, the requirements of a college degree and articulation between community colleges and four-year universities. Upward Bound students gather in front of outdoor works of art. at the Nevada Museum of Art during their tour of University of Nevada and surrounding environs. Upward Bound students hale from Chester, Greenville, Quincy and Portola communities. Photos submitted Upward Bound students pose in the Maurice Sandek "Where the Wild Things Are" exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art. Upward Bound students also participate in weekly after-school tutoring and homework help, and a once-a-month Saturday academy at Feather River College in an attempt to increase their college readiness. Topics of upcoming academies include financial aid and the scholarship search in April and SAT/ACT and STAR test preparation in May.
