Volunteer Opportunities

Gold Rush Revival PosterThere are many opportunities to volunteer in this effort, from now through the event in May.

  • Docents — There are several ways to act as a docent for Auburn Gold Rush Days. Docents may dress in period costume and take the part of an Auburn area resident in the period 1849 to 1852. They may speak with school children and visitors to convey a sense of life during this period in our history.
  • Committee participation — The committee meets on Thursdays at 9 AM in Room 10 at the Auburn Civic Center. Upcoming meetings are scheduled for 3/19, 4/2, 4/16, 4/23, 4/30, and 5/7. The event setup will occur at the Gold Country Fairgrounds on Thursday, May 14. The committee will meet to review the 1998 event, and to plan activities for 1999 on Thursday, 6/4/98. You're welcome to join us!
  • Construction — Native American volunteers will construct the Nisenan roundhouse. Volunteers will also build Dry Diggings, the tent city replicating Auburn during this period.
  • Donations — Another way to contribute is to donate materials or money to the effort. For detailed information on donations necessary to build the Nisenan roundhouse, contact April Moore at 530-637-4279. For donations of food or money, please contact Tom Homer, the event chairperson, at 530-889-3975.
