Adobe Brick Making, Gold Panning, Candle Making and Blacksmithing

Join us on Saturday, June 9th for a fun filled afternoon where you get to make your own personalized adobe brick, pan for gold, and learn to blacksmith. Adobe brick building and blacksmithing were two important trades and the techniques for both are still used to day.  Learn how!

The gold rush was an important part of California history and while you learn about that history you can see if you strike gold on the Rancho.

In addition to these activities, people will have a chance to make your own scented candle.

Join us on the upper grounds from 1pm to 3pm.  We hope to see you there!
