Pair of Grebes on Lake Almanor

Grebe Festival

The kayak tour/walks will begin at 9 am and 1:30 pm. Please arrive at the Olsen Barn Meadow parking lot 15-30 minutes before the start time of your desired trip to ensure you have completed the required liability and consent forms. Attendees are invited to bring their own watercraft if desired. PAS will provide inflatable kayaks, paddles, and life jackets, the use of which were donated by the Feather River College Outdoor Recreation Program. Thank you, FRC!! At around 11:30 am, PAS will present our new Grebe project in partnership with the Kure-Stuyvesant Trustee Council. This presentation will be followed by the opportunity to enjoy live music by local band Night Brain n' the Daylights, grab a bite to eat, and visit several tables presented by local organizations and businesses. We are so excited to share this August Saturday celebrating grebes with you all! Due to limited capacity, pre-registration is required. Please register with the More Info link below
