Plumas-Eureka State Park, on the list of state parks to be closed next year because of budget shortfalls, may have new life thanks to the efforts of the volunteer-driven Plumas-Eureka State Park Association.
Effective Friday, Oct. 7, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) Lassen-Modoc-Plumas Unit (LMU) rescinded the suspension on all burning on state responsibility area lands within Lassen, Modoc and Plumas counties. LMU will maintain and staff an appropriate level of firefighting resources until the potential for wildfire decreases.
The Plumas County Museum will be open Sundays in October from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in conjunction with the Plumas County Visitors Bureau fall foliage promotion.
The museum, which was also open Sundays in October last year, saw 114 visitors through its doors on those days alone. As one of only a couple of places open in Quincy on Saturdays and Sundays, the museum is a welcome stop for visitors to the county.
Need to forget all the bad economic news for a while and get together and have some fun? Plumas Arts can’t think of a better time or place to do just that than the eighth annual Mountain Harvest Festival Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds from 1 to 5 p.m.
Plumas Arts invites folks to come together in beautiful Quincy where the fantastic fall colors show amid majestic American Valley pines and practice some social networking — the old fashioned way: face to face, in the same place. There is more than one reason hundreds of people consider this one of their favorite events of the year.
