Gold was discovered in Coloma in January 1848 just eight miles away from Gold Bug Park. It wasn’t long until prospectors were panning in the stream that runs through the park. Big Canyon Creek was rich in gold for the early prospectors who could just pluck the gold from the stream. Once the panning operations were not turning up much gold, hard rock mining came into being. In 1888, The Hattie Mine was opened. Step back in time to the mid 1800s and experience what it was like to be a miner in the gold rush era. We will tour the Gold Bug Mine, Hendy Stamp Mill and the Blacksmith Shop. Bring a bag lunch to eat while enjoying the scenery before heading back home.
We will provide complimentary roundtrip transportation on a Sierra College bus from the Rocklin Campus. We will meet at the Dietrich Theater and leave promptly at 8:30am. Price includes bus transportation and entrance fee. Wear comfortable shoes for walking.
*Registration Deadline: September 28, 2022
