Join us this Sunday (And every Sunday through October) in Upper Park as we water our beloved baby Oaks! A great way to get some nature time, meet new BEC Staff members, and help our little seedlings to grow big and strong! We will meet at the North Rim parking lot at 9am. Bring water, sunscreen, and a hat for a bit of shade. *Poster created by our wonderful Upward Bound student, Edgar Cruz ... See MoreSee Less

Epic Trails
After our time in the Mojave Desert, we headed further north where we found more sunshine in Butte County—home to superb mountain biking, insane wildflower explosions, and great hiking.

This winter was very wet in much of the Sierra Nevada, so conditions favored an excellent wildflower season, and boy did this place deliver! Some call it a “super bloom”, but not knowing what the technical distinction is, I’d even venture to suggest this year it was a “super-duper bloom”, which we got to fully immerse ourselves in while riding bikes in Upper Bidwell Park with Tim Olsen of North Rim Adventure Sports.

Adding to an already fantastic experience in Butte County, we also had the pleasure of hiking Table Mountain, Feather Falls and Phantom Falls with local Naturalist, Jason Mandley, on this trip—the beauty of these places is something that will stick with me for a long time and I'm sure you will be inspired to get out on the trail yourself after watching this episode of Trackin' Dirt!
