|IF Illlllmmm llllllll 8B Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wildlife Areas - North Central Region WA HALLELUJAH JUNCTION WA WA Ecological Reserves - North Central Region o . P The California Department of Fish and Game is asking for fee title to 2,325 acres of PG&E land in the Humbug Planning Unit, though the agency mentions being willing for the Maidu Summit to hold fee title to the 101 acres shown off to the right of the largest parcels. Image provided by the California Department of Fish and Game Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor The Maidu Summit is not the only organization re- questing title to Pacific Gas & Electric lands in Humbug Valley. In November the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) cast its line into the water as well. Maidu Summit members and DFG officials gave pre- sentations earlier this month in Sacramento to directors of the Pacific FoYest and Water- shed Lands Stewardship COuncil, the organization charged with conservation of about 140,000 acres of PG&E land. Directors were charged with disbursing the land, after PG&E declared bank- ruptcy, through a donation and stewardship program, which requires different holders of the fee title and conservation easement for each unit of land. The DFG goal for this mountain meadow is to create a state wildlife area. The wildlife area's primary purposes, as written in the proposal, include: Protection of fish, wildlife, and plant+]'ffff from over- grazing, residential and recreational development; guarantee continued public access for the education, use and enjoyment of future generations; and restoration of wet meadow and riparian ecosystems. The DFG proposal is not one of preservation, rather one of conservation for recreational, educational, sci- entific and other diversified uses of the fish and wildlife. Included in its proposal were three letters of support from possible partners in future projects, including Plumas Corporation, Cali- fornia Trout, the Feather ! 1527SB Snow Thrower 16530EXL Snow Thrower 11.5 Ibs/ft torque Two stage Briggs & 16.5 Ibs/ft torque Stratton engine Two stage Briggs & 27" clearing widthStratton Endurance engine Easy starting package 30" clearing width Hydrostatic drive ,4995 $1 8qP9 460 X-Torq~ engine reduces fuel consumption up to X-Torq engine reduces fuel consumption up to 20% and emissions up to 60% + 20% and emissiQns up to 60% LowVib anti-vibration system ~f~ I minimizes fatigue ~ I " LwVib anti-vibration system minimizes fatigue I~ Air InjectionTM removes up to ~.

Although the Humbug unit is located on Plumas National Forest, DFG owner- ship of Humbug would create an almost "contiguous stretch of public land through a uniquely resource rich area." Lassen National Forest, California Trout and the DFG have already performed or partnered on restoration projects in the area during the past 25 years. "The California Depart- ment of Fish and Game has decades of experience in managing the fisheries and working to improve fish habi- tat in Yellow Creek, within Humbug Valley," planners wrote. "Yellow Creek is a California Fish and Game Commission designated Wild Trout stream." As a state wildlife area, Humbug would be managed in a way that would recog- nize its multicultural and multiple habitat features, while at the same time main- taining a focus on restoration of wet meadow and riparian areas. Cultural and archeological sites would be protected with Maidu Summit coordi- nation, according to the proposal. No comment from the Maidu Summit was received by press time. In October 2009, Plumas County super- visors approved a partner- ship with it. The Maidu Summit Consortium is a grot p whose members seek to obta-i-n PG&E lands on the east shore of Lake Almanor and Humbug valleys. "All of these lands were Maidu lands taken from Maidu people," the Summit wrote in a letter to Brian Morris of the Plumas County FloQd Control and Water Conservation District. The consortium is repre- sented by Mountain Maidu from nine groups, including recognized and petitioning tribes, nonprofit organiza- tions and grassroots groups.
