Historical Tales of Mining and Prospecting
Our local Evening Desert series was hosted by Lucerne Valley Museum board Oct 14th, and had a modest audience. But I must say they were very focused on what Don Fife had to offer.
Don Fife speaks on geologic regions of our High Desert
Their next presentation probably will focus on more rock hounding and prospecting topics in January or February, so watch the site for more news.
In the meantime, you can go directly to Lucerne Valley Museum & History Association and sign-up for their email notices so you won’t miss it. All of their events are free and encourage children and student-aged kids to come with their parents.
The public is invited and the programs are free. Find it at Lucerne Valley Community Center next to Pioneer Park.
The busiest month seems to be October. Add a visit to Lucerne Valley on October 14th
