LOWER LAKE, Calif. – Anderson Marsh State Historic Park turns 30 years old this year and the Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association is hosting a celebration to honor this milestone.
Everyone is invited to attend the event which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 8:30 a.m. until noon at the park, which is located off of Highway 53 between Lower Lake and the city of Clearlake.
AMIA has planned a number of activities to commemorate the anniversary of the park, which was officially dedicated in October of 1982.
Starting at 8:30 a.m. a guided nature walk will be held for those wishing to enjoy a moderate summer walk through the park. Participants are asked to meet in the parking lot at 8:15 p.m.
Then, at 10 a.m. enjoy “Music on the Porch,” and a Ranch House open house. Don Coffin, an AMIA board member and local musician will be “pickin’ and singin,” and AMIA volunteers will be in the Ranch House to share their knowledge about the history of the historical ranch house and those who lived there.
At 10:45 a.m. Sector Superintendent Bill Salata will open the ceremonies, followed by AMIA President Roberta Lyons, who will present certificates of appreciation to outstanding donors, volunteers and members. Dr. John Parker, who was instrumental in the founding of the park, will give a history of the park and why it is so important that we preserve and maintain this Lake County treasure for future generations.
There will also be an update on the efforts by AMIA to keep the park open and accessible to the public.
Then, from 11:15 a.m. until noon there will be more music, refreshments and an anniversary cake. This will be a chance to get together, talk with park supporters and enjoy a morning at the park.
