Final “Senior Days” Events at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park to Feature Tours of the Park and the History of the Anderson Ranch

On Saturday, July 13, the last in the series of “Senior Days” events at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park will feature tours of the park and the history of the Anderson Ranch as told by a descendant of the Anderson family.  The events are sponsored by Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association (AMIA).

The morning program, led by Park Docent, Certified California Naturalist and AMIA Board Member Henry Bornstein, will feature a special, private tour of the new ADA-compliant Cache Creek Nature Trail and the chance to see the interpretive exhibits housed in the South Barn Nature Center, including the first public showing of two new exhibits about the endangered native hitch (Chi) and photos and descriptions of birds that can be found in the park.  

The afternoon program will feature a private tour of the historic Ranch House and a special talk by Gordon Haggitt, great-grandson of John and Sarah Anderson, who founded the Anderson Ranch in Lake County in the mid-1880s. This is a unique opportunity to learn about life in the Lake County ranching community at a time before automobiles, electricity and hot and cold running water.
