The monthly Sierra Speaker Series connects folks to the rich cultural and natural history of the area. Join us on May 14th at Donner Memorial State Park Visitor Center to learn and engage! Doors open at 5 pm, and the presentation is to follow at 5:30 pm. Admission is a suggested $5 donation. Light refreshments will be available. Parking is free after 5 pm. “Children of the Pioneers” will be a live performance – original folk music by Rick Mitchell – of songs featuring brave and inspirational children traveling west by wagon train in the 1840s. Each song will be introduced with its historical background to set the context and mood of the song. There will be time for questions and answers from the audience, followed by a good old-fashioned sing-a-long! You’ll come away inspired and maybe even learn a bit of pioneer history! Listen to Children of the Pioneers on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.
