LET’S GET BACK ON THE TRAIL!
SUMMER LONG ADVENTURE 2021 - ROSEVILLE TO TAHOE!
Welcome Trail Travelers!
We’re excited to welcome you back to Heritage Trail 2021. This year will be different due to COVID-19, but we’re still committed to showcasing history in a fun and entertaining way! 18 museums will join us on the trail. Museum hours and openings may fluctuate, so be sure to check with each individual museum. Heritage Trail will take place from June 17th to September 5th.
This year we will continue our scavenger hunt. Everyone is welcome to take a trip back in time and get a better understanding of Placer County’s history while entering for a chance to win a Kindle Fire Tablet or Samsung Galaxy Tablet.
The scavenger hunt will encompass all participating museums and each question can be answered in-person or online. You can print it out, pick one up, or complete it digitally. All completed scavenger hunts should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or turned in to one of the participating sites.
Thanks again for joining us. We hope you have a great time, and we can’t wait to hear from you!
