The outpouring of support for FRLT's newest conservation campaign, Save Olsen Barn, has been mighty.  From the Collins Family match to local school teachers, a lot of people are pitching in to help purchase and protect this regional treasure for current and future generations to enjoy.


The Save Olsen Barn committee would like to highlight one group in particular that has really stepped up to bat for the barn and meadows of this 107 acre property.  Artists have long enjoyed the vistas, wildlife and impressive hand-hewn barn. Today they are generously contributing to see that your local Land Trust, FRLT, secures this property to permanently ensure public access for artists, nature lovers, children and the Chester/Lake Almanor community.
