Picnickers had the chance to check out progress on the new John A. Zivnuska Computer Laboratory, which is being built on the Summer Camp grounds in the Plumas National Forest. The 1,400 square-foot cedar structure, with open-beam, log house construction, is expected to be completed by this fall, and will house computers to accomodate technologically advanced field methods and teaching.
