 (Ages 7 & up) 'NEW!' The California Nursery Historical Park has features and exhibits that open your eyes to Fremont's agricultural history. This lecture/tour goes behind the scenes to reveal artifacts from the late 1700's to the 1940's from the Ohlones, Mission Rancheros,Californios, to the California Nursery Company. Each of the buildings will come alive as pictures help recreate their evolution - images of horses cultivating the land or moving large trees; old wooden carriages moving two-ton palm trees; and many more images that tell the story of the Park. You will visit the Packing Shed, Vallejo Adobe, President's Cottage, and California Nursery Office. Walking tour will include old palm trees that traveled from Niles to San Francisco and back in 1915; the boxed oak forest; and the windmill at the center of the rose garden. The tour will end at the California Nursery Company Office Museum where participants will be allowed to view the exhibits. Bring a picnic lunch to eat in the park following the workshop or visit downtown Niles as an added treat for lunch. Tour is geared toward adults but children 7 and older are welcome .
