Photo by Mike Taborski Plumas Bank launches local peanut butter drive Plumas Bank has recently launched its first regional peanut butter drive, which will run May 1 to May 30 throughout Plumas Bank's service area, consisting of 11 branch offices in the counties of Plumas, Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, Placer and Nevada. Plumas Bank President and Chief Executive Officer, Andrew J. Ryback, remarked, "In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for many people, hunger is a very real struggle. Some believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different. "Right now, many people in our own commiinities are at risk of hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot always make ends meet and may be forced to go without food. "Plumas Bank is asking our community members to donate a jar or two of peanut butter so that, together, we can help alleviate hunger and bring a ray of hope to a hungry child. By donating peanut butter throughout the month of May, we can help stock local food pantries just in time for summer, a time when kids may often go without." Ryback said the bank's employees are very excited about the drive and are eager to help. The campaign has just begun and already the bank has seen an outpouring of support from several schools, clubs and organizations. AnYOne can drop off jars of peanut butter at any Plumas Bank office throughout the month of May. The peanut butter will then be donated to local food pantries, food banks and other local emergency food network offices.

For example, planting certain non-native ornamental plants could ultimately end up destroying the quality of waterways and lands, and releasing non-native crayfish used as bait during fishing trips has likely resulted in the decline of California's native crayfish, and impacted other species dependent on the habitat. Action Week provides an important opportunity to educate adults and children about such invasive species, says CDFW. "California's greatest asset in invasive species management is an informed public," said Cook Fletcher. "The public's knowledge and collaboration is vital in preventing introductions of new invaders and stopping the spread of those that are established. Our goal is to get people out into the environment, show them the severity of what these species do, help them understand how those impacts can affect the environment and ultimately engage them in helping prevent or reduce impacts." Action Week activities will include presentations on aquatic and terrestrial invasives, guided outings to observe and assess infested areas, invasive species removal efforts, habitat restoration projects and the announcement of the winners of the youth poster contest. Opportunities for youths and adults to participate or volunteer will be available across the state through participating agencies, organizations and volunteer groups, with information and details to be provided on the Action Week Web page, Visit for contest details and more information on how to participate in Action Week. The mission of CDFW's Invasive Species Program is to reduce the impacts of invasive species on the wildlands and waterways of California. The program is involved in efforts to prevent the introduction of these species into the state, detect and respond to introductions when they occur and prevent the spread of those species that have become established.
