Plumas Rural Services' ex- ecutive director, Michele Piller, has been invited to the White House to participate in the Forum on Regional Inno- vation in Rural America held June 13. PRS' efforts to pro- mote regional economic development strategies prompted the U.S. Depart- ment of Agriculture to invite PiUer to Washington to share the agency's experiences both with the Obama admin- istration and peers across the country as well as to discuss how the federal government can continue to support inno- vative regional strategies in the communities served by PRS. Following a short introduc- tory presentation by White House and USDA Rural De- velopment staff, the forum will allow participants to share best practices and to discuss the challenges rural communities are working to address. An afternoon peer exchange session will focus on a few particular topics and expand upon some of the is- sues raised. Participants will also have a chance to meet USDA program staffers, who will provide insight into fed- eral infrastructure programs. "I am thrilled that our regional effort has been selected for national recogni- tion," says Piller. "I am convinced that the work we are doing now will have a sig- nificant positive impact not only on the counties directly affected by the Loyalton Plant operations, but for the entire Sierra Nevada region. It will be a model for small communities who have strug- gled since the decline in {he timber industry to develop new, long-term economic opportunities for their resi- dents by creating a green energy sector that helps meet the need for fuel management on our forested lands."

Ribbon The Plumas County De- partment of Public Works is proud to announce that there will be a ribbon cutting Ceremony for the Gansner Park Pathway, a multi-use paved path through Gansner Park, at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 16. Newly re-elected Supervi- sor Lori Simpson will be on hand to officiate the ceremo- ny. The new path begins at the west end of Gansner Park, joining the existing paved pathway between the tennis courts and the bridge over Spanish Creek. From there, it meanders along the top of the creek bank to the east about 2,300 feet before it comes out on Beskeen Lane. There is one paved spur that connects ing open new the new path with the east end of the Gansner Park parking lot near the main bathrooms, and another that serves as a creek overlook near the east end of the path. The project was construct- ed with primary funding from a Proposition 50 grant. The Proposition 50 grant application was initiated by John Sheehan of Plumas Corporation (since retired) and was constructed by Pub- lic Works employees and equipment. Future plans in- clude a fishing/observation platform to be constructed at the overlook site, interpre- tive signage and the installa- tion of benches and waste receptacles. Following the ribbon cutting, a Forest Service- sponsored nature hike will take place, beginning at the west end of Gansner Park. Discover how our future lies on the wings of butter- flies and native bees during this child-friendly walk with Plumas National Forest Deputy Forest Supervisor Laurence Crabtree. The walk will last until noon. Botanist Courtney Rowe will help identify plants that benefit from pollinating insects. The nature walk is provid- ed as part of the Forest Ser- vice Pacific Southwest Re- gion's 2012 pollinator special emphasis area, which has been developed to call atten- tion to the importance of but- terflies and native bees in providing important services for food production and ecosystem health. Participants should bring water, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen, and wear comfort- able walking shoes. For more information about the nature walk and accommodation of special needs, call 283-7810.
