World-traveling biologist speaks for Women’s History Month
Plumas National Forest and the Plumas County Museum are teaming up to celebrate Women’s History Month with a dinner and speaker Wednesday, March 27, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds Mineral Building in Quincy.
The featured presentation, “Daughters of California: From Pioneers to Educators to an Adventurous Scientist,” will be by Linda J. Cayot, Ph.D., a wildlife biologist who has dedicated her professional career to research and conservation in the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. Her roots and current residence, however, are in the gold country of Plumas County where her father’s ancestors settled in the early 1850s.
Tickets cost $20 and are available at the Plumas County Museum; call 283-6320.
The luncheon menu consists of grilled bruschetta chicken with fresh basil, buffalo mozzarella and plum tomatoes in a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette; roasted vegetables; Caesar salad; fresh baked bread; gingersnap and shortbread cookies; and iced tea, lemonade, coffee and tea.
