Summer academy for young adults

Young adults looking for something to do can take on projects in fields such as food and agriculture, natural resources and digital media with the Youth Training Academy this summer.

Led by the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation’s Community and Family Services department this year, the academy will have room for 90 youth ages 15–24.

Natíl and state parks seek senior volunteers

Some boomers may have childhood memories of visiting national and state parks on a family vacation, or a camping trip with friends. Swimming in rivers, hiking through forests, or looking for wildlife were all part of the experience. Added to that was the Visitor Center, where advice about where to go and what to see were combined with educational displays and high quality souvenirs that helped remind us of our visit to these wonderful places.  

Fortunately, these destinations still remain for our children and grandchildren to enjoy and create memories. In Humboldt and Del Norte counties, we have several national and state parks, reserves, and recreation areas to visit and enjoy. RSVP is working with the Redwood Parks Association to find volunteers who would like to help out in the various visitor centers up and down the coast.

Lighthouse gets landing pad, tours to resume

A St. George Reef Lighthouse Preservation Society work crew visited the lighthouse last month for repairs they hope will allow tours of the facility to resume by December.

This comes four years after Caltrans, the agency responsible for enforcing FAA regulations in California, informed the society that the landing pad wasn’t large enough to qualify as a commercial heliport, according to a recent press release.

Learning the ukulele

Diana Lee’s kindergartners sat quietly on the rug Thursday as Marshall Jones and his students distributed their musical instruments — ukuleles in colors ranging from natural wood to orange and green.

Paired with their young peers, Jones’ students showed them how to position their tiny fingers to create the A minor chord. Jones then asked the youngsters to pluck the bottom two strings of their instruments, recreating the dip of an oar as he led them in “My Paddle” before transitioning to the C chord and rousing renditions of “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Row Your Boat.”

Nearly two dozen people spent Mother’s Day afternoon getting more acquainted with Mother Nature during a Botanical Walk Sunday, learning how to identify common and rare plants found in the Smith River National Recreation Area. 

The Mother’s Day Botanical Walk is part of a series of spring and summer outings on the Smith River NRA this year hosted by Smith River Alliance and funded by a grant from the Del Norte Resource Advisory Committee.

Sauerkraut: The easiest thing to ferment

Del Norters will learn how to ferment vegetables by making sauerkraut on Thursday.
Del Norters are invited to get their hands wet and salty while transforming cabbage into something that’s tasty, long-lasting and good for the gut.

Tara Whitsitt, founder of Fermentation on Wheels, will be in Del Norte County for a Sauerkraut Spring Fermentation Workshop on Thursday. The workshop, sponsored by the Community Food Council, will serve as both an intro for beginners and a refresher for those who are more experienced.

“Sauerkraut is the easiest, most basic fail-safe thing to ferment,” Whitsitt said, adding that the class will focus on fermenting cabbage. “Cabbage is by far the most simple to ferment because it is a water-heavy vegetable. We don’t need to add any water.”

Church Notebook: Lifeís instructions say things are best with love and forgiveness

Sometimes putting things off leaves us a mess to deal with later, kind of like old folks saving all kinds of stuff.

Thursday evening I began writing this column earlier than usual, thinking to get to bed earlier. Hah. After writing two paragraphs, my screen suddenly went blue and a message appeared saying my computer was being reconfigured to Windows 10. I thought I had a choice. Guess not. I put it off as long as possible, clinging perhaps, like old folks, to the past and it took a couple hours before I could get back to work.

‘Run Before You Fly’ features 27 student-choreographed pieces 

With every piece but one student-choreographed, audience members will see countless hours of work play out on stage at Del Norte High School’s spring dance concert.

But Wren Adams’ piece “All I Want” will likely be the most personal.
