Lassen County youth invited to pitch in for meadow restoration project

Sunday, June 28, 2015 — Join July 8 for the Upper Stephen’s Meadow Restoration Service Project. The event will be led by Amy Holmen, land manager for Lassen Land and Trails Trust and is supported by the Lassen County Environmental Education Collaborative for students in seventh through 12th grades. Participants will travel to Upper Stephen’s Meadow, learn about the bionetwork of the Eagle Lake watershed and assist in restoring Pine Creek meadows through the removal of lodgepole pine saplings.
    Meadows play an important role in the overall health and integrity of an ecosystem. They purify streams and lakes by filtering sediment from runoff and provide foraging habitat for deer and small mammals. Additionally, they help support high levels of plant and wildlife diversity. By removing the lodgepole pine saplings from Upper Stephen’s Meadow, it will be improving the quantity and quality of water in Pine Creek as well as improving the meadow habitat.

Free Summer Lunch program offered in Susanville

Sunday, June 28, 2015 — With school out for the summer, many students lose the free and reduced meals offered to them each day. For some, that food might be the only sustenance they eat each day.
     To help fill that void, the Free Summer Lunch Program, sponsored by Community Church of Susanville, will be providing a meal to Susanville children.
    Resident Kirsten Lima started the  program last summer and 4,551 lunches were prepared and delivered.
    This year’s program began  June 15 and Lima said they delivered 80 lunches and received six more referrals in two days.
