New Trails Dedicated at Lassen Creek Conservation Area

lassencreektop620Lassen Land and Trails Trust was joined by partners, members and friends on National Trails Day, Saturday, June 7th, to dedicate the new trails and wildlife interpretive panels at the Trust’s Lassen Creek Conservation Area.

“This is a perfect opportunity to mark National Trails Day through the dedication of this natural and recreational resource for the citizens of Lassen County and visitors to our community,” said Liz Norton, chair of the Trust’s Trails Committee. Norton was joined by District 1 County Supervisor, Bob Pyle, in unveiling the new wildlife interpretive panels.

Lassen Creek Conservation Area is a 385-acre protected habitat for seasonal mule deer migration, which will now include a 3-mile shared-use trail for walking, biking and equestrian use. In addition, the interpretive panels will tell the story of our region’s wildlife, the importance of habitat to animals and people and wildfire restoration.

The trail system and interpretive panels were funded through a grant from the California Department of Parks and Recreation’s Nature Education Program. Additional support for Lassen Creek Conservation Area has come from Lassen County, California Deer Association, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The Trusts’ Board president, Phil Nemir, thanked all of those who have supported the work, in particular, key volunteers and local groups including the Antelope Crew and California Correctional Center; neighbor and volunteer, Bill Faatz; Joel Rathje, Lassen County Trails Coordinator; Brian Schaake who did his senior project assisting with the trail design; Pee Wee Construction; Franc Giustino and Scott Phillips.

Nemir said there were others ‘too numerous to mention’ that have contributed to the trail system.

Following the brief dedication, Trust member and volunteer Andrew Haut led the group on a walk along the new 3-mile trail, which is designed for walking, biking and horseback riding.
