The 3rd annual Eastern Sierra History Conference (ESHC) kicks off Friday, October 26 at the Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Lab (SNARL) and runs through Sunday.
14 different speakers will be presenting over the three day conference, which includes tours of historic sites like the Bishop Petroglyphs and Lundy Canyon, a tour of SNARL, and a basket weaving workshop.
Opening the conference’s speaking series at 8:45 am is Dr. Char Miller, an environmental analyst and history professor at Pomona College.
Dr. Miller has published extensively on the National Parks and National Forest Service, and will be discussing the history of Death Valley National Park. This is his second time speaking at the ESHC.
“I loved the various talks last year,” Miller said about his experience at the ESHC. “They came from very different perspectives. There are professional historians and people who might as well be… They were all raconteurs, they told their stories in such interesting ways.”
