Presentations/Signings « Flumes and Trails


Please join us for any or all of the upcoming scheduled power-point presentations and/or book signings:

Out of respect for PG&E’s sensibilities, we no longer offer our “Mysteries of the Flumes” presentation. However, if there are any interested groups out there who have not already seen them, we may be available for our “New Trails” or “In Search of the Double Incline” presentations. Contact us at flumesandtrails@gmail.com.
