Malakoff Diggins Gold Rush Program
California's 4th grade curriculum studies the Gold Rush history. There is no better place to experience first hand the life of a forty-niner at the time of the gold rush than Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park. This is the site of the period's largest hydraulic gold mine and the preserved mining "ghost town" of North Bloomfield. Fieldguides combine gold rush history with the natural history of the Sierra Nevada foothills in an educational program centered around camping out mining-style in this pristine state park. Learn more about the program on our Gold Rush Program page.
