The Sierra State Parks Foundation is hosting an engaging virtual Sierra Speaker Series with Barbara Czerwinski and Heidi Sproat from the Truckee-Donner Historical Society. State Park Interpreter Jeremy Lin will interview Barbara Czerwinski and Heidi Sproat about common Truckee myths and their knowledge of Truckee history. The interview will be on the Sierra State Parks Foundation Facebook Page at 5 pm (PST) on May 15. The recording will also be available on The Sierra State Parks Foundation YouTube Page. 
Truckee has a rich history filled with lore. The talk will cover some of these mysteries: The Rocking Stone, Split Rock, and Truckee’s population. Part of the discussion will also comment on the road to and the result of the April 30 hearing before the California State Historic Resources Commission about the status of the formal landmark application of the Truckee Veterans Memorial Building and Rocking Stone Tower.
