Shasta Cascade Fall ‘Color Spotters’ needed

From Shasta Cascade Wonderland Association

Fall is approaching and we are working again this year with John Poimiroo, the editor and publisher of californiafallcolor.com to increase tourism to the Shasta Cascade region highlighting the region’s fall foliage.  If you would like to be one of our ‘Color Spotters’ this year or know someone who would like to participate, please submit high res photos it me via email every Monday of the leaves changing in a specific area for this fall season.  Specific guidelines for submissions are below.

As in years past, the photographers will receive photo credits when John uses their photo on his California Fall Color website which is now one of the most visited fall color websites in the US with 90,000 readers who are avid travelers.

Below is the information I will need with each photo when you email them to me each week on Monday.  Please note it is very important the photos emailed are taken on a day or two prior to emailing them.  Photos more than 2 days old will not be published since the photos are being used to show what percentage of fall color is currently in the area for ‘leaf peepers’ to plan their trips to view fall color.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I look forward to seeing your photos this year.

Information required with each photo:

–     % change (see chart below)

–     Exact location

–     Date of photo (must be taken no more than a couple days prior to submission)

–     Species of trees (must be indigenous not ornamental trees)

–     Colors seen

–     High-res photographs

Thank you,
Lisa May

From July 3nd  to July 5th, Intermountain Artists, Inc (IAI) hosted the 2015 Burney Basin Days Art Show at the Burney Reunites Welcome Center. The show was organized by Nancy Bobo, head of the art show committee, assisted by Pat Carlson and Rose Peer.

The show included artwork from 125 Northern California artists. Most were from the Intermountain area, but others came from the Redding area, and some came from as far away as the San Francisco Bay area. An estimated 600 to 800 people came to attend the show.

Patricia Carlson won Best of Show. She also tied for the People’s Choice Award with Belinda Strickland.

There was also a junior division that was won by Diana Sophia Green.

Burney Reunites and the Intermountain Art Show shared the use of the old Lyons Pharmacy Building, now owned by the Shasta Community College Foundation. The foundation generously permitted the use of the building for Burney Basin Days.

After the event, Bobo said, “It was so rewarding to see so many people enjoying themselves reminiscing through memorabilia and the old Lyons Pharmacy Building. It was also a pleasure to be able to share so much local talent with everyone.”
