In 2015, MBFIA assumed the responsibility to support Castle Crags State Park and Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park. Activities in these areas are still under development.
MBFIA is pleased to accept donations from visitors and friends in support of educational and interpretive activities in the parks. Donations can be given to the Burney Falls Visitor Center, the Castle Crags Entrance Station, or mailed to MBFIA, P.O. Box 777, Burney CA 96013. Designate Burney Falls or Castle Crags on the donation and funds will be used only in that park.
Members of the MBFIA Board
Next Board of Directors Meeting:
3rd Wednesday of Each Month at 11:00 AM by Zoom
and in-person at Burney Library
MBFIA raises funds to support educational and interpretive activities at the Park, including interpretive personnel, a printed Visitor Guide provided free to visitors, Junior Ranger activities for children ages 7 – 12 and Discovery Quest badges that visitors can earn exploring the Park. MBFIA manages the Visitor Center Gift Shop. An annual Heritage Day celebration, free to participants, supports life in the area in the 1870s. Thanks to a donation from Kelly’s Wishes Foundation, interpretive staff lead canoe tours on Lake Britton in the Park.
Funds are raised through the sale of firewood, recycling, advertising in the Visitor Guides, the operation of the Visitor Center gift shop, and most importantly---donations from friends and visitors.
