Temperatures are not too hot, the air is crisp and nature's palette turns to red and gold. I'm inspired to visit my fa- vorite higher elevation locales before winter sets in and ren- ders them inaccessible. It's no surprise to me then that Family Health and Fit- ness Day is scheduled for Sat- urday, Sept. 25. This nation- wide designation encourages families to get outside and do something healthy-- ride a bike, walk in a park, boat on one of our beautiful lakes. National Public Lands Day is also Sept. 25. Locally, the Sierra Buttes Trail Steward- ship has a trail workday scheduled near Bucks Lake. Folks can help maintain one of three trails: Bucks Creek Loop, the Pacific Crest Trail and Granite Gap Trail. All ages and abilities are welcome, and volunteers will be well compensated with good food and cold beer at the end of the day. Tools are pro- vided as well. Meet at Whitehorse Camp- ground at 9 a.m. Bring work gloves, daypack, water, sun- screen and hat. Camping is available for those who want to make a weekend of it. In addition to SBTS, the event is sponsored by Bucks Lakeshore Resort, the Pacific Crest Trail Association and the U.S. Forest Service. Also for National Public Lands Day, the Pacific Crest Trail Association is partner- ing with the Lassen National Forest for some trail work. Volunteers will log out the PCT to the north and south of Domingo Springs Camp- ground. Work will consist of removing blowdown with handsaws, supporting USFS chainsaw operators and restoring user trails that go around the fallen timber. Volunteers who can stay for Sunday will work on the trail south of Highway 36, in- stalling erosion control rocks and drain dips on steep sec- tions of the trail. Camping is available for Fri- day and Saturday nights. Sat- urday is limited to 12 volun- teers, and Sunday is limited to six. All meals, tools and train- ing are provided by the PCTA. Advance registration is re- quired. To register or if you have questions about this pro- ject, contact Merrit Hoeh at (916) 285-1838 or *ttr Join the SBTS and Gray Ea- gle Lodge for a full moon hike Thursday, Sept. 23. This fami- ly friendly event starts at Gray Eagle Lodge, off of the Gold Lakes Highway, for din- ner, happy hour and an infor- mational talk on the future of trail projects in Sierra and Plumas counties. A two-mile, round-trip hike from Gray Ea- gle Lodge to beautiful Smith II New slgn As a community service project for the Feather River College softball team, the Rotary Club of Portola donated this sign to celebrate the team's first-ever appearance in the Super Re- gional Playoffs last season. The sign will be placed on the dugout at the softball stadium. Standing next to the sign is Athletic Director Merle Trueblood (right) and softball coach Josh Taylor. Rotarian Bengie Gentry designed the sign. Photo submitted Lake will follow. Par- ticipants will need to R.S.V.P. and bring plenty of water and a flashlight and dress in lay- ers. No pets this time. Chil- dren over 10 years old, or who can hike up to 2 miles, are welcome. R.S.V.P. to SBTS by calling 836-4333 or e-mailing The campground at Plumas- Eureka State Park has been re-opened. The campground was closed following the dis- covery of a plague-carrying rodent. A "dusting" treatment was ongoing last week. Offi- cials gave the go-ahead to open the campground in time for the Labor Day weekend. Meanwhile, other park fa- cilities -- including the muse- um and trails -- remain open. The park will stay open until Sept. 26, with the museum open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only. For a listing of park activi- ties, visit and click on "Weekly Activi- ties." And don't feed the animals, no matter how cute they look! In neighboring Lassen County, the Lassen Land and Trails Trust will offer a tour, Birds of Willow Creek Wildlife Area, Saturday, Sept. 25. Dr. Lew Oring, a retired professor of ornithology from University of Nevada-Reno, will lead the tour. Meet at 8 a.m. at the railroad depot in Susanville or at the wildlife area at 8:30 a.m. Entrance is on Highway 139. Bring water, lunch and sun protection. Expect to see lots of wetland birds as fall migration is just beginning. This will be a half- day to full-day field trip de- pending on interest. Walking will be moderate and less than 3 miles. LLTT hosts its annual Rails to Trails festival Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 9-10, in Susanville. In addition to bicycle rides on the Bizz Johnson Trail, the festival offers a chili cook-off and salsa contest, children's activities and drum circle, handcar races, caboose tours, beverage booth and live music.
