Sierra Club program explores gold mining history

Snohomish County's history is linked to the gold mining town of Monte Cristo.
Tied to the wealth were the men whose names now are memorialized on Everett's street signs: John Rockefeller, Colgate Hoyt, Charles Colby and Henry Hewitt.
Learn about these men and more at a presentation by the Sierra Club called, "Monte Cristo and the Mountain Loop Highway: Past and Present Environmental Issues."
The talk features historic photographic documentation and funny stories, along with photos and information on the current threats to the county's gold-mining heritage.
Bill Lider is the presenter. He's a licensed engineer, naturalist and photographer with a deep knowledge of local history.
The 90-minute free talks are scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Everett Public Library, 2702 Hoyt Ave., Everett, and 7 p.m. June 18 at Lynnwood Public Library, 19200 44th Ave. W.
