The first in a series of “Senior Days” events to be held at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park is scheduled for Saturday, June 1.

In the morning, the program will feature Rob Morgan, the Tribal Historian for the Koi Nation of Northern California, descendants of indigenous people who lived on the southern end of Clear Lake for thousands of years, including the land that makes up the park.

According to Henry Bornstein, the event coordinator for Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association (AMIA), “Mr. Morgan tells a revealing, entertaining and personal story about the history of his people that anyone who is interested in the lives of the original inhabitants of Lake County should not miss.”

In the afternoon, a very special presentation by Jenny Papka of Native Bird Connections will include a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with live birds of prey that have been rehabilitated after injuries that made it impossible for them to survive in the wild.  “After seeing last year’s presentation, I can say that being that close to these large and impressive birds and learning about them from an expert is an amazing experience,” said Bornstein.

Space is still open for the morning and afternoon events on June 1. AMIA invites anyone who is interested in learning about the Senior Days program or registering for one or both of the June 1 events to visit its website at andersonmarsh.org.  

AMIA is a nonprofit organization cooperating with California State Parks to promote educational and interpretive activities at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park.  For more information about Senior Days, the park, or AMIA, visit andersonmarsh.org or contact AMIA at info@andersonmarsh.org or 707-995-2658.
