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.

Lions Lake Habitat Restoration Project

Habitat restoration work began this week at Lions Lake at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. This project is being done in partnership with the Nevada County Resource Conservation District (RCD) and involves removing silt and trash from the lake, removing a block wall and replacing it with a rock wall, replacing failed culverts and doing shoreline stabilization.  When completed (in about 2-3 weeks) the lake will be healthier and there will be new walking trails around the lake. It’s important to note that the lake will NOT be fully drained. It will only be partially drained, and RCD worked with Fish and Wildlife on permits for the project, which includes safeguards for protecting wildlife. We are extremely thankful to RCD for their work and expertise on this project, and we can’t wait for the community to see the “new” lake.

Friends of the Fairgrounds: Elena

Meet Elena, who chose to have her senior portraits taken at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Why the Fairgrounds? “It’s so beautiful and peaceful out here; and I love that my family has been part of these Fairgrounds for generations. I work here in the summer, my Mom works here year-round, my Grandpa used to be the CEO, and both my Grandpa and my Great Grandma are in the Fair’s Hall of Fame. It holds a special place in my heart!” We love you, Elena; and we think the Fairgrounds is a perfect spot for your senior portraits!
