Making Tracks for 2011 Walk Your History

WYH Title BarMay 7, 2011 - Walk Your History Day

The City of Belvedere, Town of Tiburon, Belvedere Community Foundation, Tiburon Peninsula Foundation, Belvedere-Tiburon Recreation, and Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks have again joined forces to bring you the 2011 Walk Your History event.   

This year there are two sponsored walks - one through Belvedere spotlighting Belvedere's historic Golf Course and one through Tiburon spotlighting Old St. Hilary's and the Miwok Indian History.  Each walk is dotted with Living History Docents at Historic Hot Spots in both communities.  The walks begin and end at Belvedere Community Park and culminate with a picnic lunch, music, and fun!

The Belvedere Loop will focus on the historic Belvedere Golf Course and Club House.  The Tiburon Loop will highlight the China Cabin, the Boating Clubs, Miwok Indian Shell middens and Old St. Hilary's! 

If you are interested in being a docent for the event or helping out during the day - we welcome volunteers!  Contact Pam at Landmarks for more details 415.435.1853. 

Clean & Green Thank you!  

A special THANK YOU goes out from the City of Belvedere to all of the organizers and participants in Clean & Green Day!  This event was an incredible success sprucing up Belvedere's public spaces.


On behalf of the City Council, City staff, and those that use the parks, lanes, paths, and benches - THANK YOU!
