Last week, RCRC Board Chair and Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter hosted the May 2023 RCRC Board of Directors meeting in Butte County. The two-day event included the RCRC Board of Directors meeting at the Canyon Oaks Country Club in Chico and tours of Oroville Dam, the Gorrill Ranch Fish Screen and Ladder Project, and Magalia Community Park. 

During their visit, Supervisors met with personnel operating the Oroville Dam, California's second-largest reservoir, and took an exclusive tour inside the facility. The group then visited Gorrill Ranch to see the Fish Screen and Ladder Project, a restoration partnership that protects and assists migrating fish with passage to spawning grounds in Upper Butte Creek. The group concluded their outing at Magalia Community Park where they explored the recently opened South Pines Disc Golf Course; a Camp Fire recovery project that also serves as a positive recreational amenity to the surrounding community. 

As is an organizational tradition, the RCRC Chair hosts a Board of Directors meeting in their county during their tenure. The May RCRC Board of Directors meeting brought over 30 elected Supervisors and rural county leaders to Butte County 

RCRC thanks the County of Butte for hosting our rural leaders, and the Department of Water Resources, the team at Gorrill Ranch, and the dedicated group at Magalia Community Center for their assistance in making this an enjoyable and memorable event!
