Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010 15A House party for Feather River Land Trust Mohawk Valley resident Ken Hyatt visited with Feather River Land Trust's Executive Director Paul Hardy at an informational meeting regarding the group's mission and current projects. In celebration of the nonprofit's 10th anniversary, Iongtime members Denise and Bob Stein hosted an informal gathering Aug. 7 at their Whitehawk home to introduce members of the community to Hardy and FRLT board member=. Hardy showed a slide presentation of the organization's successes in land conservation over the past 10 year= (14 properties totaling 28,000 acres in conservation easement) and described various projects it had implemented, such as Learning Landscapes, which ensures children have open space contiguous to their schools, and preservation of the Heart K Ranch in Geneses and the Maddalena property in Sierra Valley. Any community members wishing to know more about Feather River Land Trust may call 283-5758 and find staff ready and willing to tell them more. Photo by Diana Jorgenson Ranch closed for weed treatment The Ramelli Ranch area will be closed to public access from Aug. 16 - Sept. 10, dur- ing implementation of the Beckwourth Ranger District tall whitetop weed-control project. Tall whitetop (also known as perennial pepperweed) is a non-native weed that infests much of thearea and is crowding out native plants, reducing the amount of valu- able forage for grazing ani- mals and causing erosion be- cause its roots do not hold soil in place. Its spread has been rapid. In 2003, there was one known location; in 2006, there were 69 locations on approximately 8 acres; and in 2007, the spread was estimated at 15 - 25 acres. In 2009, the area was mapped using GPS and the in- festation had grown to ap- proximately 161 acres. Other treatments tested in the project area include cover- ing plants with black plastic, goat grazing and mowing. These treatments have re- duced the number of seeds pro- duced but did not kill plants. Without an effective treat- ment, tall whitetop will con- tinue to spread, invading addi- tional acres nearby and poten- tially spreading throughout the entire corridor of the Mid- dle Fork of the Feather River. The area of infestation has been pre-treated by goat graz- ing, and herbicides will be ap- plied during the closure peri- od. The closure order and a map of the area will be posted at various access points to the Ramelli Ranch area and at The closure area is one mile southwest of the town of Beckwourth, T23N, R14E Sec. 26, 27, 28 and 29, bounded on the north by Highway 70, on thewest by Grizzly Creek, on' the south by the railroad tracks and on the east by the Forest Service property line. All required environmen- tal compliance and public notification have been com- pleted. Information about the project may be obtained from the project leader, Michael Friend, by calling the Beckwourth Ranger District Office, 836-2575.

Incum- bents John Larrieu and Curt McBride filed to reclaim their council seats and were joined in the race by Juliana Mark, Portola resident and owner of J's Feather River Rental. Leslie Tigan filed paperwork to continue her position as city clerk and runs unopposed. No one filed candidacy pa- pers for the position of city treasurer, a situation that has arisen frequently over the years. In past years, the city council has appointed Leslie Tigan to the position, in lieu of an elected officer. City council positions will be decided in the Nov. 2 elections. The mayor, with consensus of the council, appoints plan- ning commissioners for the city. The terms of office for the positions held by Bill Main- land, Pare Gill and Jason Harston all ended at the end of July and all three request- ed reappointment to those seats. Mayor Larrieu acquiesced to their wishes at the July 28 council meeting, with no dis- agreement by any other coun- cil members. Their terms will expire in 2012. pol House Offering educational programs for children!
