FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 18, 2010
News Release #10-30

The Plumas National Forest special closure to protect bald eagle nesting territory is in effect beginning on Friday, June 18. The closure area is in the vicinity of Little Grass Valley Reservoir, 50 miles northeast of Oroville in Plumas County. The closure area includes the north loops of the Wyandotte Campground (accessed by roads 22N57YA & B), near the southern section of the reservoir. The closure will be in effect until August 31, 2010.

The closure has been in effect for the past 16 years and has helped a bald eagle pair to successfully nest and raise young, contributing to the sustained recovery for this species. Bald eagles are particularly sensitive to disturbances during their nesting phase. The birds, recently de-listed under the Endangered Species Act, are still protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.
