The signs were the result of collaboration between the high school, Plumas County Public Works Department, Plumas Corporation, the Plumas County Museum and local artists. The project began nearly a year ago. The county had funds made available through Prop 50 that allowed it to build the pathway at the park along Spanish Creek. One condition was the pathway had to have interpretive signs. Public works had the funds to build the signs, but not enough to hire professionals to design them. Public Works Director Jim Graham approached Watershed Education Coordinator Rob Wade with the dilemma. Plumas Corporation funded Wade's work facilitating the project, collaborating with the different groups. First, Wade approached Danielle Frid and Suzanne Sterling at Quincy High School to see if their seventh-grade classes might be interested in participating The first of three interpretive signs along the Gansner Parkl Pathway illustrates the "mystique of Spanish Creek," detailing the many uses of the creek that runs through Quincy.

Both agreed and all parties involved chose the theme "The Mystique of Spanish Creek" for the interpretive signs. Frid's art class painted pictures of nativeplants and animals along Spanish Creek. Sterling'sclass got to work researching and writing text that could go along with the images. Local artists Lucinda Wood and Michael Kerby also donated paintings for the signs. Everything was taken to Scott Lawson at the museum, who checked for authenticity. Once all the materials were finalized, public works had the signs constructed and installed. Plumas County Supervisor " Lori Simpson attended the dedication and spoke to the high school students about the importance of working on these types of projects. "As you'll grow up, you'll be the next great Quincy : generation," Simpson ., addressed the students. "This is an example of what can be done when everyone works together." The finished signs can be seen along the Gansner Park Pathway. To see the signs, start at the walking bridge next to the park and follow the southeastern trail along and past the park.
