UPDATE: The Fall Fest has been cancelled per a press release from the Plumas National Forest Supervisor’s Office. 

 

All are welcome to celebrate autumn and the outdoors with family entertainment and fun-filled educational activities for children, young and old, at Plumas National Forest’s 10th annual Fall Fest. The free event will be held Saturday, Oct. 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mt. Hough Ranger District, 39696 Highway 70 outside of Quincy.

 

Hands-on activities include making wooden tree cookies, rolling seed balls for birds from native seeds and creating “recycle art” using recycled items. Boy Scout Troop 151 will be on hand to teach knot-tying and other booths will feature information about owls and other birds, mountain biking and other outdoor activities. Antonio Flores, East Bay Regional Parks docent, will be teaching Native American elderberry flute making while captivating the audience with songs about dragonflies, bears and coyotes.

Local music group Spur of the Momentand cowboy poet Tony Argento will perform. “Cactus Bob” Cole along with Joe Tomaselli and “Prairie Flower” Chris Stevenson showcase their style of classic cowboy music on stage at noon and again at 2 p.m. Describing himself as “tuned-up and twisted,” Argento will take the stage at 1 p.m.

This year, PNF Trails Day is being held concurrent with Fall Fest. Starting at 11, watch off-highway-vehicle riders, horses and hikers encounter each other on trails and learn appropriate techniques for sharing trails safely with each other. Trail partners include Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, Backcountry Horsemen, High Mountain Riders, Sierra Access Coalition, Pacific Crest Trail Association, Feather River College Outdoor Recreation Leadership program and the PNF.

Indian Valley Volunteer Fire Department once again offers barbecued hamburgers as a fundraiser, and Pioneer-Quincy Elementary School’s sixth-grade class will rustle up its homemade desserts to raise funds for the Watershed Education Program.

Families are encouraged to grab the kids and a blanket (or chair) and join PNF employees outdoors this fall to enjoy outstanding fun-filled educational activities and entertainment hosted by the forest.
