Members Only Talk – Anderson Marsh

On Saturday, April 9, Dr. John Parker, LCHS President, will be presenting a talk ‘Anderson Marsh: The Back Story’, plus, a documentary film, ‘A Walk Through Time’. This is a members-only event at which you can join at the door.

Next year is the 40th anniversary of the acquisition of Anderson Marsh and Ranch as a new State Historic Park. With its majestic landscapes, diverse wildlife, and a history spanning 14,000 years, Anderson Marsh State Historic Park is one of the most unique places in all of California. What extraordinary events led to the park’s creation?

Dr. John Parker will present the story of the 6 years of behind-the-scenes work it took to secure the funds to acquire the park; including nominating the area to the National Register of Historic Places, public awareness work, people getting fired, recall campaigns, fines, fraud, arrests, and ‘Devine’ intervention.
