The tour follows the old wagon road from Beck- wourth to Genesee in Plumas County -- providing the opportunity to learn about the history of the area while enjoying the scenic mountain route. The tour is led by Dan E1- liott, archeologist and tribal relations program manager with the U.S. Forest Service, and Farrell Cunningham, a local Mountain Maidu histo- rian and one of the few re- maining speakers of the Maidu language. California has an extensive stow to tell when it comes to immigration. People have come to California to discov- er new opportunities for nearly 200 years. Plumes County was traveled to for gold, lumber and new discov- eries, while Native Ameri- cans have lived in California for thousands of years. On the tour, participants will learn about the history and culture of the Mountain Maidu who lived in the area for thousand of years before European settlement. In addition, the tour will explore the more recent his- tory of early immigrants like Jim Beckwourth, an African American explorer and settler of the West. Other tour highlights in- clude a visit to Clover Val- ley to discuss historical dairy, grazing, and lumber practices in the valley, as well as restoration work done on Red Clover Creek. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about the many his- torical bridges and passes of the old logging railroad that ran through the steep mountains surrounding the valleys. Elliott and Cunningham are knowledgeable and will discuss various historical sites with their many inter- esting and enjoyable stories. Space is limited; call early to reserve a place. Morning refreshments, lunch and transportation are provided as part of the tour, which be- gins at 8 a.m. and concludes by 4 p.m. Cost is $50 per per- son, $95 per couple. Visit the forestry center's website, Sierralnstitute.us, for more details, or call Lau- ri at 284-1022 to reserve. Plu After getting off to a suc- cessful start, with about 225 people in attendance at the first meeting June 12, Plumas Tea Party Patriots, a division of Nor-Cal Tea Party Patriots, has scheduled bimonthly meetings. Saturday evening meetings will be held at the Graeagle Fire Hall, from 7 - 8:30 p.m., and will include refreshments and guest speakers. Meetings have been sched- uled for July 24, Aug. 7, Aug. 21, Sept. 11, Sept. 25, Oct. 9, and Oct. 23. Barbara Alby, District 2 representative on the Board of Equalization and former state assemblywomen, is the featured speaker at the next meeting Saturday, July 24, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Graeagle Firehali. Alby, whose life many con- sider a true American success story, will share her tale of rising from welfare room to member of the California Leg- islature to her current post on the taxation board. The defining moment in her life, she said, was the day then-governor Ronald Reagan cut her welfare benefits. Al- though she didn't like him very much back then, she credits him today for chang- ing her life. Foremost among Alby's leg- islative accomplishments are laws to protect women and children from sexual preda- tors. She is the author of Cali- fornia's Megan's Law, which requires law enforcement to notify community members when a sexual predator moves into the neighborhood. She also has a notable record as a tireless advocate for the taxpayer and business community. According to Maureen and Bob Tarantino of Graeagle, this is a nonpartisan group and the gathering is open to anyone concerned about the direction the country is head- ed and who would like to learn how to make a differ- ence by holding lawmakers fiscally accountable, standing for strict compliance to the U.S. Constitution, limiting government and supporting free market solutions.
