Sierra Speaker Series: Truckee History with Barbara Czerwinski & Heidi Sproat

September 15, 5 – 6:30 pm

Complimentary refreshments will be served, with beverages available for purchase. A $5 donation is suggested for this free program. Parking is free.

The Sierra State Parks Foundation is very pleased to offer a presentation by Barbara Czerwinski & Heidi Sproat from the Donner Party Hike.

Do you know how and why Truckee became known as the birthplace of California Winter Sports? Ever heard of an Ice Palace? We will explore Mr. McGlashan’s vision and economic needs combined with the draw of Truckee’s Rocking Stone and the Southern Pacific Railroad which collectively helped to morph the greater Truckee-Tahoe Region into the present day year-round tourist and recreational destination that it has become.

Doors open at 5 pm | Program begins at 5:30pm

Suggested $5 donation

Donner Memorial State Park Visitor Center
12593 Donner Pass Rd, Truckee CA 96161
