Join River Partners for a quick walk and open-air art project at the Bidwell Sacramento State Recreation Area near Chico. The Brayton Project is a 25-acre riparian reforestation project that was planted in 2020 amidst old-growth Valley Oak Riparian Forest. The site hosts beautiful views of the Sacramento River and its raptor populations. We will provide a short description of the restoration project and lead a casual art project for participants. No need to fret about art skills this experience is more about seeing the river and its birds through the work of your hands. Materials and supplies provided by River Partners. Please bring you own chair.
