"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."

MURPHYS– The public is invited to a documentary film Cattle in the Sierra, a presentation on the long history of cattle grazing in the Sierra Nevada. Screening at Old School House, 65 Jones Street Murphys, CA Sunday, February 24 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm Refreshments will be served. Come and share your ranching stories. Since Forest Preserves were established in the 1890s, the U.S. Government has increasingly sought to balance citizens’ rights to use these resources with their stewardship responsibility to protect these lands from degradation. This short documentary presents current controversies over high-country grazing and hopes for a future resolution.
