Shasta College GIS Students Visit Fenwood Ranch

IMG_0436.JPG

Today we enjoyed partnering with Shasta College's GIS students on developing an online mapping system that will allow the Shasta Land Trust to advance our annual monitoring program and mapping database.  The students got a chance to tour the Fenwood Ranch and use the Shasta Land Trust as their mock client in a project that is tied to their overall class and final capstone project.  Thank you to Dan Scollon, Devon Hedemark, and Tim Hill for working with the Shasta Land Trust on this beneficial project.

The Boisclaires in Northern California have spent the last couple of years searching for Monarch caterpillars. Their goal is to help them become full grown butterflies within the safety of their home and eventually be released back into the wild. We were lucky enough to be invited over to learn the secrets of the majestic Monarchs and how we can help this species for future generations.

5 Best Places to Watch the Meteor Shower in Shasta County

This week, Earth is entering a stream of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, known as the annual Perseid meteor shower. grain-like specks of debris are hitting the top of Earth's atmosphere at a high rate and burning up in the night sky, producing a spray of shooting stars from the constellation Perseus. The best time to watch is early morning August 12-13 where star gazers can expect to see up to 40-60 meteors an hour.
