Now is the time to participate! The Feather River Land Trust and the Olsen Property Stewardship Committee invite you to fill out an important survey to inform existing and desired public uses on the 107-acre meadow property.

Click here for the quick online survey!

In October of 2015 FRLT became the owner of this beautiful property with the help of nearly 400 individual donors, hundreds of volunteer hours, and a $400,000 grant from the California Department of Water Resources via Plumas County.  The Olsen Property was purchased and permanently conserved by FRLT to protect wetland and meadow habitat, preserve public access to the land, to explore productive recreational uses, and to restore the historic barn.

The community-based Olsen Property Stewardship Committee is currently working on a management plan to guide FRLT’s work on the land, infrastructure improvements, and future recreation.  Now is your time to provide input into this planning process.

Management decisions for the property will be made in accordance with the mission of Feather River Land Trust, the Plumas County General Plan, and the recognized Conservation Values associated with the property from the River Parkways Prop 50 grant that was received from the State of California.

The public is asked to complete and return this survey by April 30, 2016.  Survey data will be compiled and will be used to help shape the future management of the Olsen Property.  Surveys can be picked-up and dropped-off at several locations in Chester including Bodfish Bicycles, Plumas Bank, Holiday Market, and Builders Supply or you can mail to the Feather River Land Trust, PO Box 1826, Quincy, CA 95971.

Or you can take the survey online right here.
