Gold Panning @ South Yuba River State Park
Jul 14 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Gold Panning at Bridgeport 018 Begins May 26Interested in trying your hand at Gold Panning? When you visit Bridgeport in South Yuba River State Park this summer, be sure to stop by the troughs near the Visitors Center.  Learn from docents how the old 49ers used simple pans to find hidden treasure in the shallows of the Yuba River.  After a panning demonstration, practice your technique in the troughs before heading down to the river to do your own prospecting. 

Docents at Bridgeport provide step-by-step panning lessons, share stories about the history of our area, and describe other ways the precious metal was extracted during the California Gold Rush, such as hard rock mining and hydraulic mining.  Gold panning is fun and educational for the entire family and kids get to keep the treasures they find in the troughs.

Docents offer gold panning demonstrations at Bridgeport from noon to 2:00 p.m. every weekend and holiday, beginning Memorial Day Weekend, May 26 through Labor Day, Sept. 3. Gold panning sessions for private groups and school talks can be arranged at other times by prior reservation.  
Due to the anticipated bridge renovation and construction work beginning this summer at Bridgeport, please check our website http://www.southyubariverstatepark.org/ or call 530-432-2546 to be sure gold panning will be available.
 
Call the South Yuba River State Park for more information and private group reservations at (530) 432-2546.
 
Good times awaits you in the South Yuba River State Park at Bridgeport.

Westwind Brass Concert @ Sierra Starr Vineyard & Winery
Jul 14 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Saturday, July 14th, Sierra Starr is hosting a concert that you won’t want to miss. Come join the Starrs and enjoy the homecoming performance of son Dr. Eric Starr (Jack’s younger brother) as a member of the West Wind Brass. Eric (Lecturer of Music/Performing Arts Coordinator SDSU) has achieved great success following his passion for music rather than joining the family wine business, ….. although he always leaves with a trunk full of wine.
The Westwind Brass exists to “broaden and enrich the musical legacy of local, national and inte­rnational audiences through performance and educational services featuring brass instruments and music”.
From rich Baroque sonorities of Handel and Bach to contemporary serious and pop music, to the bluesy jazz of Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonius Monk, you will hear a varied array of music.
Bring a picnic dinner, blankets or low folding chairs and enjoy the Westwind Brass at Sierra Starr under the stars.
no outside alcohol
$20/person
*Advanced reservations recommended
