Nature and the human spirit are resilient. That is the timeless theme of this unforgettable three-mile walk and talk along the Deer Creek Tribute Trail. It’s a place where the local Nisenan thrived before the Gold Rush era decimated the Tribe, the land, the plants, and animals on which they subsisted. Today, nature and the original people continue to hold on. Hiking for Good founder Laura Petersen will lead hikers into forest to learn about the medicinal and edible plants found along the way. At the “Angkula Seo” suspension bridge, Nevada City Rancheria Tribal Spokesperson Shelly Covert will share language, song, and stories. Shelly will share about interpretive sites and a Nisenan Garden. Bring water, sturdy walking shoes, and layered clothing (dress for the weather!)
