Thank You, PRIDE

Thank you to this hardworking group from Pride Industries Foundation who spent the day raking the pine needles from the cow barns, as well as cleaning the ticket booths. We also had another group of individuals helping us in the office last week and we will continue to partner with PRIDE on a monthly basis. We are so appreciative of this team’s help, their smiles and their positive attitude. Keep up the good work, team, and know that you are making a difference at the Nevada County Fairgrounds!

Lions Lake Habitat Restoration Update

Habitat restoration update: Lions Lake is still closed to the public, but the wildlife are thriving (lots of goslings) and we’re adding water to the lake. We can’t wait to “unveil” the pond in a few weeks. A huge thank you to Nevada County Resource Conservation District for making this project happen and for restoring the lake for our community.
