FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve
Local expert entomologist Don Miller will lead the trip on the BCCER, and Don Hankins, geological sciences, will coordinate the trip on the BCEP.
Groups will meet at 8:30 a.m. at either Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve (9.8 miles from Bruce Rd. on Hwy 32 East) or Butte Creek Ecological Preserve (turn left off Skyway and go 3.1 miles on Honey Run Rd).
The event is free, although donations will be accepted. Please wear long pants, a hat and sunscreen, and bring a sack lunch, water, pencil, paper and a field guide to butterflies if you have one.
To attend send your RSVP and choice of locations to Jeff Mott at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited, so early sign-up is recommended. The Web site for the reserves can be found at http://www.csuchico.edu/bccer/index.htm.
The BCCER and the BCEP are owned and managed by the California State University, Chico, Research Foundation. The BCEP is a 93-acre site along the middle section of Butte Creek and contains more than a mile of creek frontage, which is critical salmon habitat and spawning grounds. The BCCER contains 3,950 acres of diverse canyon and ridge habitats, including 4.5 miles of Big Chico Creek, and is home to many species of plants and animals.
