Gold Bug Park is a California landmark right here in Placerville. The park creates a connection between the current residents of California to the people who settled on this land in pursuit of gold.
To help maintain this connection, the El Dorado County Resource Conservation District, in partnership with the Gold Bug Park Committee, is putting on three workdays this summer to help control invasive plants, clean up trash, restore trails and plant native plants.
The second of these work days is Saturday, July 20 at 9 a.m. There will be one more work day this summer on Aug. 24, also at 9 a.m. Please contact the RCD’s AmeriCorps Project Coordinator Matt Lasser at 530-295-5636.
