Sierra Speaker Series: Caleb Greenwood
The monthly Sierra Speaker Series connects folks to the rich cultural and natural history of the area. Join us on July 16th at Donner Memorial State Park Visitor Center to learn and engage!
Caleb Greenwood went into the wilderness west of the Mississippi River three years after the return of Lewis and Clark and died during the California Gold Rush. He is a human metaphor for the opening of the West and a buckskin colossus, even among mountain men. He knew everyone and did everything, and then he lied and bragged about his accomplishments. Yet most people, even Western history buffs, have never heard of him.
