All Day The Wild Rose Presents "A Winter's Day" by Ken Mayer Photography
Jamestown, CA...The Wild Rose Presents "A Winter's Day" By Ken Mayer Photography

All Day Valentine’s Adoption Special!
San Andreas, CA...Valentine’s Adoption Special! FOCAS –Friends Of Calaveras Animal Services is a non-profit organization with its primary mission being to enhance County Animals Services by providing a better environment for the animals housed at the existing county shelter. It was created by a small group of local residents who understood that Animal Services is also public safety and plays an important role in keeping our community healthy.


FOCAS is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible.

09:00 AM - 12:00 PM Selection and Care of Roses, Flowering Trees and Shrubs
Jackson, CA...Roses, flowering trees and shrubs are popular in local home landscapes and gardens. If you have questions about which ones to choose and how to successfully care for these colorful ornamentals, plan on attending the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County Public Education class “Selection and Care of Roses, Flowering Trees and Shrubs” on Saturday, January 27, 2018. Master Gardeners at this class will discuss various ornamental trees and shrubs that grow throughout Amador County, and the seasons in which they bloom. Proper timing, planting and pruning methods, will be covered, as they vary with plant type.  


This class will also include detailed information about the most popular types of roses which can be grown in a landscape or garden setting in Amador County (Grandiflora, Hybrid Tea, Floribunda, Polyantha, Climbing, and Antique). We will also discuss how to best care for your roses throughout the year, including planting, irrigating, fertilizing, and pruning. Common diseases and pests of roses, and how to manage them with IPM, Integrated Pest Management strategies will be included. The class will include a rose pruning demonstration as well as a free raffle for the newly pruned specimen. Handouts will be available. The class is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. All classes are held in the GSA building at 12200-B Airport Rd. in Jackson from 9am to Noon.

For questions, call the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County at the UC Cooperative Extension Office from 10am to noon, Tuesday through Thursday, 209-223-6838 or email mgamador@ucdavis.edu. Website:  http://ucanr.edu/mgamador
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.


A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.

12:00 PM - 04:00 PM Murphys Old Timers Museum Will Display "Cattle in the Sierras " Through April
Murphys, CA...Funded by a California Stories grant from California Humanities, the Murphys Old Timers Museum, has produced an exhibit on the long-established practice of transhumance in the California Foothills and Sierra Nevada. Since gold was discovered in California in the winter of 1848, cattle have roamed the foothills in winter and spring, summered in the rich grasslands of the Sierra Nevada, and returned to their lowland homes in the fall. This annual pattern (transhumance), with established ranches and farms in the lower elevations and summer camps and pasturages in the high mountain meadows, is rapidly disappearing. Threatened with the diminishing price of beef to producers, difficulties in transporting livestock to their summer ranges, and environmental regulations, this 160-year old California tradition may disappear in the near future. Proponents of grazing argue that this will result in loss of mountain meadows and ponds as well as lowland ranches with their grass ranges to residential sprawl. Some environmental and hiking groups contend that livestock grazing in the mountains has led to degradation of streams and native ecosystems. The exhibit, and a video, recount the stories of historic cattle ranching in the California foothills and its battle to stay alive in the face of current environmental and economic challenges, also addressing the effects of its continued operation on mountain ecosystems. Utilizing historical and current photographs and the installation of a 1911 high country cow camp, this exhibit argues that by working together to solve grazing issues, ranchers, the Forest Service, scientists, environmental groups, and the public can resolve their differences, resulting in a win-win for all. A 15-minute video, presenting both sides of the issue and a hope for reconciliation, is forthcoming.




The exhibit will be on display at the Murphys Old Timers Museum, 470 Main Street, Murphys Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays 12 pm to 4 pm through April 29, 2018. Call for more info 728-1160.
