Land Trust kicks off its spring and summer treks

Spring and summer treks are being offered by the Nevada County Land Trust, which hosts more than 100 trips each year.

Last year, more than 1,000 people explored local history, mining engineering, ornithology, astronomy, archeology, botany, biology, entomology, geology and ecology on Land Trust events.

Upcoming trekking locations include Fuller Lake, Excelsior Canal, Rome Powerhouse, Loney Meadows, Codfish Falls, Chalk Bluff Paleontological Preserve, Fords Bar and 1850s Town Site and the Spenceville Wildlife Area.

Guides include Bill Nickerl, John Olmsted, Dale Johnson, Albert Earl, David Lawler, John Skinner and Kris Wakefield.
