Heritage Days of Mendocino County is in full swing now during all of May! This is the eighth year for Heritage Days—Nancy and I started it back when we were part of the now defunct Mendocino Business Association. Over the years, more organizations have joined the effort, including a number of inland partners in Willits and Ukiah. Organizers include: the Kelley House Museum • Ford House Visitor Center • Guest House Museum • Point Cabrillo Light Station SHP • Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens • Mendocino Study Club • Mendocino County Museum & Native Daughters of the Golden West. Events this year include touring the third-order Fresnel lens at Point Cabrillo; tours of Ridgewood Ranch (home of Seabiscuit); historic walking tours in Mendocino, Fort Bragg, Willits, and Ukiah; lectures by historians; cemetery walks, and more. You can see the full schedule on the Heritage Days Web site.
