Education Forum

Dear Community Member,

Your are being invited to a special Community Forum on Education.   Whether you feel directly involved with or affected by the quality of education in our community, please consider,

"Each generation of youth predicts the future prospects of the community." 


The community leaders who gathered at the Almanor Basin Community Consortium on November 14, 2019 shared the following challenges facing our community.  Those highlighted are affected by education or affect the quality of education in the Lake Almanor Basin.
  • Need for skilled workers across all sectors
  • Need for affordable housing 
  • Declining and aging population
  • Insurance and government regulations hindering businesses, increased cost of running a business in California and cost of resources, minimum wage rates affecting small business profitability
  • Few or limited cultural opportunities for young adults and families with young children, need for more organized community activities for all, including tourists.
  • Need for more industry (restaurants, bars, shopping) to support community and draw guests. Businesses aren’t able/don’t stay open year-round due to seasonal population. Business vacancy and affordability to fill those vacancies 
  • Curbside appeal and beautification 
  • Family issues - increasing number of children in schools with socio-emotional issues and no guidance. Addiction issues. Employment and lack of childcare.
  • Minimum wage not enough to support a family. 
  • Need for good, reliable internet for businesses and to attract those who would work remotely.
  • Disconnect between areas around lake and socio-economic populations 
  • Community engagement. Need for community-wide communication, engagement, involvement, volunteers supporting others’ efforts and challenges. 
  • Community and visitor outreach. One location for all information - Calendar, directions to Community Amenities - Way-finding system
We ask that you take part in this forum regarding the issues in our community that affect education. Share your thoughts, ideas, and experience with us!

PLEASE RSVP HERE

The meeting is sponsored by the Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce and Plumas Unified School District.

Ranger-led Snowshoe Walks (Saturdays and Sundays)

Ranger-led snowshoe walks are an excellent way to learn or practice snowshoeing techniques and explore Lassen in its winter form. The walks cover one to two miles of moderately strenuous terrain. They don’t follow a trail—the hike is an off-trail exploration through the forests near the Visitor Center. At the beginning of each snowshoe walk, a ranger will demonstrate how to put on snowshoes and how to move around. Once the basic techniques are covered, the group heads out into the snow and the adventure begins!

Please Note: Walks may be canceled at the last minute due to extreme weather conditions. Please feel free to call (530) 595-4480 ahead to check on conditions.
