Yosemite Book Signing at Museum
July 26, 2012

The Community Memorial Museum will present a book signing and program with environmental historian Dr. Jen Huntley, talking about her new book The Making of Yosemite: James Mason Hutchings and the Origin of America’s Favorite National Park. The public is welcome at the event on Thursday evening, August 9th at 7:00 p.m.

Dr. Huntley examines Hutchings’ role as leader of the first tourist expedition into Yosemite Valley in 1855, and as a tireless promoter of Yosemite and himself, who made Yosemite into a potent symbol of California’s post-gold-rush greatness. Although Hutchings has been viewed as an opportunist who exploited Yosemite and was written out of its history, Huntley explores the original history and views Hutchings as a “connector” whose activities, by extension, contributed to the Yosemite Valley being designated as America’s first federally-sanctioned park. She explores the power politics and culture wars of 19th century America’s emerging ethic of land conservation that gave birth to modern environmental movements.

Volunteer Opportunity to Help Save the Yuba-Sutter Fair
July 24, 2012

Due to the recession, funding for County Fairs has been eliminated from the State of California budget.

In response, a non-profit foundation has just been formed to help the Yuba-Sutter Fair stay open and to continue to provide important opportunities for youth.

“Friends of the Yuba-Sutter Fair Foundation” is holding its first fund-raiser during the run of the fair, which runs Aug. 1 through Aug.5, and is looking for volunteers to help staff a booth.

Volunteers will get free admission to the fair.
