Fall 2023

Spring hikes and events were great, and we’re starting fall activities soon. These hikes provide a great opportunity to come out with a group and get acquainted with the trails at the preserve. Bring family and friends to enjoy the outdoors and learn about different topics of interest.

We’re excited to let you know that Horsetown-Clear Creek Preserve was recently approved for a grant from the State Wildlife Conservation Board. It will fund the Western Shasta Resource Conservation District (WSRCD) to undertake habitat restoration projects for pollinators and wildlife on the preserve. Bird and bat boxes will be installed, and native seeding and planting will occur. The WSRCD will investigate further to determine the feasibility of a couple of hopeful projects.

There is a lot of excitement right now at Horsetown! If you’ve been getting our newsletters, you know we’ve been seeking a gold rush-era photograph of Horsetown for more than 30 years. Joe Molter, a retired geologist with BLM, discovered a photo while doing a research project. Watch for more on this wonderful development!

If you enjoy the preserve and our events and/or appreciate the work we do, please consider volunteering with us, visiting a board meeting, or making a tax-deductible donation to Horsetown-Clear Creek Preserve. You can donate via PayPal and Thrivent Choice, mail a check to our P.O. Box below, or make an online donation on Giving Tuesday. Your generous donations of time and money are the strength behind our advocacy. Our primary support comes from individual contributions.
