Thank you to all who attended the sold out performance of Pete Escovedo and Sons. You bid high and often at the auction and in turn showed enormous support for land conservation.
I love this county for all the unique characters that call this place home. When I am walking around I like to people watch, and I wonder if I will ever get to a place where I am not surprised anymore. I recently had an experience on the trail that emphatically answered that question with a resounding “no”.
Last week, ownership quietly changed hands for one of Nevada County’s most historic buildings, the North Star House, designed by famed architect Julia Morgan more than a century ago, reaching a major milestone in the building’s history.
During its 25th anniversary year, Bear Yuba Land Trust has launched a new website to showcase its deep and diverse connection with the local community.
When I was going through the interview process with Bear Yuba Land Trust I participated in several trial work days. I mostly worked on the two mile Black Swan Trail and it was a great learning experience. At that time only locals and people with permission were allowed to be out there.
As a Trails Coordinator with Bear Yuba Land Trust, I get the opportunity to go out in nature and explore our county quite a bit. I organize and host volunteer work parties that cover a range of activities. We do everything from trail layout, to building trails, to hanging up signs, or even cleaning up a cartel grow site.
Communities need trails and trails need the community. We have many miles of trails here in Nevada County and it is one of the reasons that this area is such a desirable place to live. Trails maintain our rural and scenic way of life. They provide recreational opportunities and help keep us healthy and happy. Trails increase property values, support broad user groups, and are free for everyone to use.
