The 900- acre Heart K Ranch, recently conserved by the Feather River Land Trust, is a Sierra Nevada treasure, boasting scenic mountain beauty and a rich historical and cultural past.
The Fall Play Day will provide the opportunity for you to get to know this lovely landscape and to meet like-minded people. The day will be full of activities that will fit a variety of interests including a hearty scenic hike, hands-on volunteer activities, a talk and tour, a BBQ lunch, local brews, and a hula hoop contest (!).
The Talk & Tour from 11:30 to 12:30 will highlight sustainable agricultural activities, restoration projects and innovative inclusion of Native American land use techniques. Volunteer opportunities (9a-12:30) include helping to restore the historic granary building and forest clean up (take home firewood if you like!). The BBQ (1 p.m.to 2 p.m.), social time and lawn games will be from 1p.m. to 4 p.m.
Silent auction items include a barn quilt, a hanging wall quilt, and a pie-a-month for a year!
