September 2022 First Wednesday Talk – The History of Mount Burdell with Mike Warner
- This event has passed.
One of Marin County’s highest peaks, Mt. Burdell is located in northern Marin. While many people know the history of Olompali State Park, located on its northern slope, there are many more Mt. Burdell stories to be told. We will touch on ranching and mining of the mountain, some of its first residents, and even a World War II plane crash. Finally, we’ll take a look at plans to develop the mountain in the 1950s.
