TheHeart K Ranch is a key piece of Genesee Valley property for the important cultural value it holds for the northeastern Mountain Maidu community. The ranch is home to everything from black oak stands that continue to be used for gatherihg acorns to a homestead that formerly housed a Maidu family. The property, as mentioned before, includes several miles of riparian corridor that provide prime willow and cottonwood habitat. Traditional Maidu basket weaving requires willow branches and the Heart K is still used as a harvesting site for these resources. The property also includes several orchards that have fallen into disrepair and a hemp patch that provides material for cording. For more information contact Karen Kleven at the . Feather River Land Trust, 283-5758 or Museum features landscape photographer From July 1 through Aug. 31, the Plumas County Museum will feature the fine art and landscape photography of Willie J. Hyman, of Chico. The Plumas County Museum is located at 500 Jackson St. in Quincy. Hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 283-6320. Hyman has been a photog- rapher for the past five decades and relies on his use of pro film, pro cameras and equipment, dedication to the art of photography, lots of hard work, and many hours of travel throughout the West to capture the scenes dis- played in his photographs. Adamant that he will not use digital methods in his photography, he believes the use of film gives his work the added realism he strives for. Hyman has traveled far and wide throughout the western states and Canada to capture the art of today that may be gone tomorrow. On view in the museum's Stella Fay Miller Mezzanine Gallery through the end of August, Hyman's exhibit is dedicated to the memory of his friend and longtime Plumas County Museum volunteer and dedicated amateur historian Don Johns, with whom Hyman shared a passion for explor- ing historic backroads in search of interesting bits of lost history and recording them on film for posterity's sake. Hyman invites everyone to visit the museum to view his show, which features a mixture of his nature photog- raphy and his images of America's disappearing rural farmscapes.
