The UC Davis Retiree Center is sponsoring a day trip to Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley on Tuesday, May 3, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Space is still available, and the trip is open to all senior citizens, whether they are UCD affiliates or not. The cost is $60 for members of the public.

The Empire Mine is the site of the oldest, largest, and richest gold mine in California. From 1850 to its closure in 1956, it produced 5.8 million ounces of gold. The park contains many of the original mine buildings, the owner’s cottage and the restored gardens and grounds as well as the entrance to 367 miles of abandoned and flooded shafts and tunnels.

The remainder of the park consists of forested back country and 12 miles of trails including easy hikes.

This trip will include tours of the mine yard and the owner’s cottage as well as a special Miners’ Lunch served at the Club House patio by volunteers dressed in period costumes. The lunch consists of the famous miners’ pasty (beef, chicken or vegetable), cole slaw, beverages, ice cream and cookies.

After lunch, participants will have free time to explore the grounds and gift shop, or take a quick stroll on a hiking trail. The ticket price includes two 45-minute walking tours, lunch, bus transportation and snacks as you board the bus.

Trip policies and registration forms are available on the UCD Retiree Center website at: http://retireecenter.ucdavis.edu/activities.html#empire. Forms should be completed and sent, along with payment, to the Retiree Center at the address on the form.

Members of the UCD Retirees’ Associationand the UCD Emeriti Association pay a discounted price; others pay the nonmember price. For more information, call (530) 752-5182 or visit http://retireecenter@ucdavis.edu.
