A recently completed forest health project has given a group of Quincy High School students plenty of experience on what it takes to maintain a healthy forest for wildlife and reducing the threat of fire.

With funds from the California Fish and Game Commission and resources donated by Pacific Gas and Electric Co., the Feather River Resource Conservation District coordinated a pilot project with QHS teacher Matt McMorrow’s Natural Resources class to improve the quality of the forest habitat near the school. These lands are part of the Learning Landscapes Program initiated by the Feather River Land Trust, which seeks to provide sustainable access to natural lands within a 10-minute walk from every school in Plumas County.
