All that rain has made for an abundantly gorgeous spring - and isn’t that just the loveliest metaphor for life?
Healthy Shasta is improving our community’s wellness, one bike ride and fruit smoothie at a time. And if you’re ready to follow their lead, there’s no better time to step outside and absorb the North State’s awe-inspiring scenery. We’ll share some tips about a few of our favorite trails.
Then, celebrate the health of our planet at the 11th annual Whole Earth and Watershed Festival. Held on Earth Day, the festival will help you become a better steward of this place we call home.
Celebrate the Western way of life at the Red Bluff Round Up, where you can spend a couple of days immersed in what has become a daily lifestyle for folks like the Bridwell family. Their story is one of many that shows the grit, determination and passion that is required to make a living in the rodeo world.
You can also soak up some cultural fun at the Chico Wildflower Music festival, which features an all-day lineup of entertainment for any age. Headlined by The Mother Hips, the festival benefits the tuition-free charter school, Wildflower Open Classroom.
And finally, you’ll be inspired by the Junior Leadership Development Program, where mentors are helping guide young people into adulthood with faith, hope
Wishing you a bright and beautiful spring. Enjoy!
