Feather River Action!, a grassroots organization based in Portola, has announced a guided tour Nov. 12 of an old-growth forest within the boundaries of Plumas National Forest’s proposed Community Protection – Central and West Slope Project.
Participants will meet at 10 a.m. at Pioneer Park in East Quincy. They will then caravan up La Porte Road to the Strawberry Valley area, have lunch, and go for an easy-to-moderate hike, said Josh Hart, Feather River Action! spokesperson. Hart recommended participants bring hiking shoes, rain gear, warm clothes, and plenty of food and water. “Get your questions answered about what the Forest Service has planned, experience beautiful ancient old-growth rainforest (before it’s gone), and find out how we can protect it (and avert truly catastrophic climate change),” he said.
The event will be held rain or shine, but will be canceled in the case of significant snow at higher elevations. Carpooling is encouraged. Those interested are asked to RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org.
