On November 11, the now infamous Camp Fire threatened Feather River Hospital in Paradise, California. Employees lined up their cars to evacuate patients, putting patients’ needs first even as their own homes were lost. 

Feather River Hospital employees are lifesaving heroes in more ways than one. 

With the hospital support facilities closed, many of these heroes are now also without work. 

Please show your support and appreciation for their sacrifice by contributing to the Feather River Hospital Fire Disaster Fund.

UNUSUAL WILDLIFE SIGHTING - Ringtail cats or Miner’s cat

Two of our rangers were patrolling at around 5,000 feet elevation when they saw a Ringtail cat! It was quite a shock to both of them, especially since they are nocturnal animals. 

These cute critters look to be a cross between a fox and a raccoon, and the size of a small house cat. Here in California they are also known as the miner’s cat.
