The Galena Creek Regional Park is no stranger to local history having witnessed the Comstock Lode's unprecedented demand on natural resources, the early days of recreation in the Sierra, severe mountain floods, and the birth and development of one of the County's most popular parks.
Join Washoe County Park Ranger John Keesee for an evening of stories from Galena Creek Regional Park at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 31, 2012. Ranger Keesee will lead a short walk around parts of the park discussing the history of the area as well as the story behind the park and some of its facilities.
This is a free program. All ages welcome. Bring sturdy shoes, water, and an extra layer of clothing for the cooler evenings.
Washoe County's Department of Regional Parks and Open Space will offer free If Parks Could Talk programs at 7:00 p.m. every other Thursday evening between May 31 and August 23, 2012. Details of future programs will be announced soon.
