The swarm was located about a miles south-southeast of downtown 6raea- gle and at the top of the Frazier Creek housing development. The hypocenters were between 4-6 miles below the surface. It began with a tiny M 1.0 at 4:35 a.m. Mon- day morning, paused for an hour and.a half, ripped off another four quakes during the 6 2.2 1.8 3:08a.m. 6:23 p.m. 7/30 7/28 o'clock hour, and five more during the 7 o'clock hour. It sputtered, surged, waned and sputtered again for the next two days, producing 53 events in 68 hour recording period, but only one registered in the M 2 range, a M 2.2 at 3:06 a.m. Wednesday. The swarm was ongoing at the end of the re- porting period. The activity was centered on the western side of the Mohawk Valley fault zone. The epicenter plot shows it likely occurred on northeast-southwest cross fault to the main fault system. Much of the surface fault exposures here have been buried by the thick glacial debris as- sociated with the Frazier Creek glacial lobe. Musk thistle is an counties. Learning prevent spreading. invasive weed found in Plumas and Sierra to identify invasive species is important to Photo courtesy UC Cooperative Extension can tnvasive The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has designated the week of Aug. 2 - 10 as California Invasive Species Action Week. To assist in the fight against invasive species, the UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners, Feather River Resource Conservation District, Natural Resources Conservation Service and Feather River Land Trust will offer a walking workshop Wednesday, Aug. 6, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m., at the Learning Landscapes Leonhardt property (meet at the tennis courts by the Quincy High School). Participants will learn about invasive species, as well as how to identify, manage and report them once introduced. The term invasive species might conjure images of a pesky weed in your backyard or fanciful thoughts of aliens invading from outer space. In reality, invasive species pose an increasingly serious threat to communities and ecosystems around the world -- including Plumas and Sierra counties. What is an invasive species? An invasive species is a non-native organism that has a negative impact on the environment, economy or human health. When a species enters a new environment, it often lacks the predators or controls that normally limit growth, allowing aggressive species that tolerate a broad range of habitats and compete strongly for resources to proliferate and take over new ecosystems. Invasive species are considered a major threat to the environment because of their ability to change habitats and alter the way an ecosystem functions. The spread of invasive species is the second greatest threat to biodiversity worldwide, after habitat destruction. In addition, damaging effects may influence human activities, including agriculture, forestry, fisheries, tourism and health. In the U.S. alone the estimated economic impact of invasive species totals $120 billion a year. The most effective and cost-efficient way to fight the spread of invasive species is prevention, which includes good sanitation practices, sources of weed-free landscape materials and selection of non-invasive alternatives for the garden. Once invasives are introduced, early detection and removal are key to successful eradication. The University of California Master Gardener Program provides the public with UC research-based information about home horticulture, sustainable landscape and pest management practices. It is administered by local University of California Cooperative Extension county offices, which are the principal outreach and public service arms of the university's division of agriculture and natural resources.
