Visit the last fully steam-powered commercial lumber mill in the United States at Phillips Brothers Mill. Co-owner Gary Hendrix will share the treasures of this working historical mill which includes the saw mill, production shop, operating steam boilers, steam engines, and collection of 1920’s tractors. The day includes an optional short forest tour to observe the sustainable forestry practices of the mill. Afterwards, enjoy beer, wine and delicious snacks while listening to live local music.
This is the 13th year of Shasta Land Trust’s Wildways series of fundraising events – a fun and unique way for people to contribute to the preservation of significant lands in far northern California. Hosted by volunteers, all proceeds from ticket sales support Shasta Land Trust’s mission to conserve local land. Wild ways connects people and places, featuring some of the most interesting and fun outings in the North State.
The 21 Wildways events of 2016 feature a diverse array of new adventures and old favorites. Enjoy exclusive access on several of their protected properties, as well as expanses of open space, interesting local businesses, beautiful private residences, and other secret spots, all while supporting local land conservation.
Since 1998, Shasta Land trust has led the efforts in the north state to permanently protect nearly 24,000 acres of working ranches and agricultural lands, wildlife habitats and migration corridors, and scenic and recreational landscapes.
