Clean Up day with volunteers
Volunteers started the 2014 season at Plumas Eureka State Park with more than 150 hours of raking, hauling, washing, and scrubbing to ready the historical area at the museum in Johnsville on May 3.
These volunteers participated in the annual spring cleaning to get the park ready to officially open its campground May 23. Reservations can be made at reserveamerica.com.
Plumas Eureka State Park Association invites the public to tour the working blacksmith shop, assay office, Moriarty house and museum to absorb local mining history.
These venues highlight the little known hard rock mining history of the Johnsville area and assist California State Parks in celebrating its 150th birthday this summer.
Event schedules for the 2014-summer season, including Gold Discovery Days on July 19 and 20, can be viewed at plumas-eureka.org or call 836-1995 for details.
