California Trail Heritage Alliance Board meetings are held at the California Trail Interpretive Center (”Trail Center”) every third Thursday of the month at 6:00pm unless otherwise amended. All meetings are open to members and the general public. The Alliance fully participates in the California Trail Days; some members may attend the meetings Oregon-California Trails Association (OCTA) and other events.
Plaza Lighting: With a grant from the Nevada Commission on Tourism and further funding from Trails West, we continue to work with the Trail Center on the installation of additional lighting in the intrepretive plaza at the Interpretive Center, to allow for more night-time events. Other ongoing projects of the Board are the design and placement of billboards along Interstate 80, working with other Elko entities on a bicycle path, and the establishment of an adopt-a-trail program. Strategic Plan: The Foundation has completed our first strategic plan with the assistance of Zachary Pratt, BLM Outdoor Recreation Planner and input from Interpretive Center management. Completed and approved February 18, 2015, identified were fund development, outreach, project identification, and board development. Contact us by email at ctcf1849@gmail.com for more information. 501(c)(3) Status: The Foundation was granted 501(c)(3) status in September 2014, enabling us to take advantage of many new opportunities and making most donations to the Foundation tax deductible.
