Wild & Scenic® Film Festival On–Tour Red Bluff

Postponed Until 2025

Each year the Tehama Conservation Fund (TCF) hosts a community celebration, the Wild & Scenic® On-Tour Red Bluff. This event provides a unique opportunity for us to connect with you all and share in our mutual appreciation for the great outdoors through film. Unfortunately, the event set for March 8, 2024, has been postponed until 2025. It was a difficult decision to postpone but necessary as we relocate the office. After decades spent in our current office space, we will be at a new temporary office by early March. We look forward to next year, as Spring 2025 will mark TCF’s 10th year hosting this event.

We’re available at the same phone number. Our new mailing address is PO Box #1232 Red Bluff, CA 96080. We appreciate your understanding and are excited to make the most of the changes and prospects ahead of us!

Burrows Conservationist of the Year

Supporting wildlife and our way-of-life is something that the late, great Bill Burrows regularly talked about. As a local rancher, outdoorsman, instructor in the Shasta College Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources for 34 years, and longtime Resource Conservation District of Tehama County associate director, Bill was passionate about integrated farming and ranching practices. He believed that all land management decisions should be dedicated to the social, financial, and environmental enhancement of our community. He understood that private and public parties should work together for mutual benefit. We think that Bill would be delighted to know that a local steward would receive an award in his honor, annually.
