Due to expected rain Saturday, the Kings River Warden Patrol BBQ planned at the Thorburn Access Park has been moved to the Cedar View Winery at 1384 S. Frankwood Avenue in Sanger, the Kings River Conservancy announced Friday.

The winery is a half-mile south of Highway 180 on Frankwood Avenue and about a three-minute drive east from Thorburn Access Park.

Saturday's event runs from noon to 2:30 p.m.

The fundraiser and barbecue will benefit the Frank P. Jones Memorial Warden Patrol Fund. All money collected goes toward increased fish and wildlife warden patrols on the lower Kings River. More than $30,000 has been raised.

There will be multiple raffles, with the grand prize an all-expenses paid guided trip for six to the Shasta Springs Trout Camp outside Dunsmuir donated by Cal Trout. Tickets, at $25 apiece, are limited to 100 sold.
