As we complete our Rapid Assessments and return for longer-term restoration planning, we’re assessing each property, its conservation values, and the impacts. Some properties, we’ll want to direct the future through active measures, like reforestation. Others, we’re simply allowing nature to heal and recover itself.

Several crew members have commented that the Heart K Ranch is one of the most beautiful places they have ever seen, and we have tried to help them understand that they are doing the important work of helping the Heart K recover from the Dixie Fire while preparing it for the next time fire comes around.

The Feather River Region has always been special to our family. There is so much diversity in the landscape and so much to explore. We enjoy hiking, boating and swimming at Lake Almanor, and also taking day-trips to Sierra Valley from our home in Reno. I am happy to support FRLT who is working hard to preserve these special wild places.
