About your host

I grew up in the California Mother Lode region surround by mountains and the history of prospecting. My passion for gold came after moving to Brooklyn and daydreaming about the rivers and trees of my home town. Upon returning to California I set out to immerse myself in the history of Southern California prospecting as a way to more deeply engage the San Gabriel mountains.

What we’ll do

Let's explore California's rich gold history by going prospecting and panning for gold! They say the miners of yesteryear only recovered 1/3rd of the placer gold so we'll hike back in time up the canyon's and rivers of the San Gabriel mountains searching for those elusive California gold deposits. Prepare to get dirty and wet digging in the gravels when I teach you the time tested gold panning…
