Right along the North Fork Feather River is the Olsen Barn Meadow, a community favorite with a historic barn that is over 130 years old. Visitors can view wildlife, Lassen Peak, and Lake Almanor from the meadow.
Sierra Valley Preserve
2,586 acres near Beckwourth
Sierra Valley used to be a prehistoric lake the size of Lake Tahoe. It has many wetlands that are home for many different types of plants and animals. Sierra Valley Preserve is the only place with public access in the valley, with a West and East Entrance.

Sophia works for FRLT's Development and Communications team, telling stories of their work through a variety of mediums. Capturing the wildlife and landscapes of the preserves was very fulfilling, and Sophia is excited about more ways to use her artwork to highlight the beauty of this watershed and important work FRLT is doing.
