On April 23, Sacramento Chapter Daughters celebrated the culmination of a two-year project to contribute an interpretive sign to Camp Pollock, an historical WPA-era Boy Scout Camp in north Sacramento. Located along the American River, Camp Pollock is now open to public use under management of the non-profit Sacramento Valley Conservancy. Joining us for the unveiling were District 7 Assemblyman Kevin McCarty, Sacramento Valley Conservancy Director Aimee Rutledge and conservancy founder, Bob Slobe. Representing CSSDAR were State Historian Sally Holcombe and Commemorative Events Chair Linda Withers.
Boy Scout Troop 1 conducted a flag ceremony and Camp Pollock neighbors Randall and Margaret Parker performed Reveille and the National Anthem to open the event. Our talented and tireless Historic Preservation Chair Barbara Leary and her committee worked countless hours to accomplish this project. We are so proud to have provided this handsome and useful marker as a legacy to a landmark that preserves local history and native wildlife and plants, promotes conservation, and offers quality outdoor recreation opportunities to our community!
