Docent tours of the Oakland Museum Gold Mine Exhibit
for Members and Volunteers

This summer our own Larry Hannah is going to do two small group tours of the Gold Mine exhibit at the Oakland museum, where Larry is currently a docent.

The tours will focus on the history through story- telling.  While the tour will have a Gold Rush focus, we also will spend a significant amount of time in the "Before the Settlers Came" section with an emphasis on the foothill tribes where the Gold Rush took place. Also covered will be the negative impact of the Gold Rush on the native peoples, immigrant groups, and the environment.

These small docent tours will end with lunch together in the museum cafeteria, which serves very good food.
