The Plumas Audubon Society has developed a program of bird and botany walks to provide all who are interested with an opportunity to see some of these birds and various plants with guidance from people who have expertise in identifying different species.

On Saturday, May 7, David Arsenault and Tony Hall will lead a morning bird walk that will explore Spanish Creek from Gansner Park down to the wastewater treatment ponds. The walk will start at the parking area next to the tennis courts in Gansner Park at 7:30 a.m.

At 5:37 p.m., May 3, Chester Fire Assistant Fire Chief Nick Dawson said, "The Susanville Inter-Agency Fire Center reports that the smoke inundating the Lake Almanor Basin is from a 300 acre controlled burn in the Hat Creek area." The north winds are bringing the smoke directly over the mountains and coating the Lake Almanor Basin. Visibility becomes challenged from approximately 2 miles east of Plumas County Road A-13 and through the community of Chester. The smoke is the densest in the back bay of Lake Almanor near the Last Chance Campground.

Graeagle has lost one of its true pioneers with the passing of Harvey West Jr. last week.

West died Tuesday, April 26, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Reno. “He is Graeagle,” said longtime friend Don Clark. “He built this community and its infrastructure with his own money. He built the streets, church, tennis court, golf course — everything that makes this town what it is today.” “It is the loss of a true pioneer and friend,” said Dick Lundy, who enjoyed a longstanding professional and personal relationship with West.
