Stepping up

Volunteers can help save Bidwell Park

Local cleaning company ServPro recently offered its services to the city of Chico to help keep Bidwell Park’s Caper Acres (pictured) open six days a week for the next few months. Now the Bidwell Park Foundation is seeking donations through the North Valley Community Foundation (go to for more info) for general park maintenance. Formerly known as the Bidwell Park Endowment Fund, Bidwell Park Foundation’s set-up was changed to allow for more flexibility in conducting fundraising efforts and managing the donated funds. The foundation needs volunteers to get the fund up and running. If interested, contact Tom Barrett at 345-7265 or by email:
