Advisory group visits historic trail, discusses natural resources

Members of the BLM's Northeast California Resource Advisory Council learned about efforts to preserve remnants of the Noble's Emigrant Trail, when they held a field tour and meeting in Susanville Aug. 24 and 25. Touring several sites along the trail, the RAC reviewed interpretive materials now being finalized that will tell the story of the westward migration as it passed through northeast California.
