Join us for a program that explores Shasta County’s public infrastructure around water resources and transportation from the perspective of the Carr family. Local resident Pat Carr will lead us on a journey to discover the history of Shasta County dams, reservoirs and waterways and the impact they had on local transportation highways. As one of Shasta County’s pioneer families, the Carrs participated in many discussions and activities associated with the development of this public infrastructure and offer a unique perspective on its history.

Join us for a program that explores the pioneering spirit of some of Shasta County’s most extraordinary women. Some represent women pioneers in the usual sense, and some that were pioneers in their professions and areas of expertise. They are from varied backgrounds, used both traditional and non-traditional roles and often defied social norms to make significant impacts on society and influence those who followed. These women represent their many peers, from well-known to obscure, for who we did not have enough space to include.
