CALIFORNIA'S GOLDEN HERITAGE PROGRAM

What were the first people of California like? What caused the California gold rush? Was Sacramento really California's first capital? How did California play a role in the Transcontinental Railroad? The answers to these questions and many more will be shared with you when you take part in the new multi-year event sponsored by the Placer Pacers of Auburn, California.

Those interested in participating in this special event must complete 12 sanctioned AVA/IVV walks from a list of California sites which are in, through or include many of California's parks, forests, visitor centers or museums as part of the walk. Four (4) separate walks must be completed in each of the three areas: 4 Northern, 4 Central, and 4 Southern California. This is a total of 12 walks. This special event is scheduled to run through December 2007 unless extended at some future date.

Upon enrolling in the event, the participant will receive a special event book and a list of eligible sites in each of the three areas. The AVA event stamp and passport stamp at the site will be placed in the special event book. Updated information will be available at this site as the event progresses. A list of new scheduled events will be posted in The Wanderer as they become available.


This program ends December 31, 2007. No new books will be sold after that date, but you may continue to send books in until supplies are exhausted.

Upon completion of the 12 events the book is returned to the Placer Pacers, and the walker will receive a certificate and a 4 inch full colored patch (pictured to the right) in the shape of California with pictures depicting some of California's rich heritage. The book will also be returned.

To enroll in the program return the application form with $6.00 to: Placer Pacers California's Golden Heritage, P.O. Box 142, Auburn CA 95604. Be sure to include your e-mail address, if you have one, so you can receive e-mail updates as they become available. If you do not have email or access to The Wanderer, please note it on your application so you can be sent information on new walks as they become available.
