The El Cerrito Historical Society presents:
EL CERRITO URBAN FOREST: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE

Journey through time with us as we survey El Cerrito’s urban forest and how the ever-changing values of El Cerrito’s residents influence its structure and composition. We’ll explore what is known of the pre-European forests that existed here, how they have changed with urbanization, what they look like and how they are managed today, and what the future holds for them in light of a changing climate. We’ll discuss how a properly managed urban forest can provide multiple community benefits while a poorly managed one can be a potential liability.

Sunday, March 31, 2019. 2 p.m. Free.
Light refreshments
Arlington Clubhouse, 1120 Arlington Blvd.

El CERRITO HISTORICAL SOCIETY ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN 2017, GOALS
FOR 2018


El Cerrito’s Centennial occupied much of the society’s attention in 2017. Of the 78 Centennial events listed on the centennial calendar, the Historical Society sponsored or co-sponsored 17 of them – more than any other organization, we believe. Pat Shaw represented the historical society on Centennial planning.
 
The society toured historic buildings and neighborhoods, featured talks on the city’s origins and growth and delved into how El Cerrito became the place we know and love. We learned about the Castro family, our city’s “gambling past,” the history of our recycling center and our Boy Scout camp, Camp Herms – among other subjects. (CHECK OUT THE LIST!)


 



EL CERRITO'S TEPCO CERAMIC FACTORY
A brief History by (Ariel Plotnick/KQED)

I saw my first TEPCO dish at the Alameda Antiques Fair. A stack of floral patterned plates sat on a table, waiting to be bought. The pink glaze glistened in the sun. I immediately fell in love...
