USDA Forest Service and Chinese Historical Society of America are proud to launch ExploreAPAheritage.com, a new website created in partnership with the APA Heritage Collaborative. The goals of this collaboration are to bring support for conservation efforts, and inspire a new generation to conserve, explore, and interpret historically significant sites in California and Nevada. We invite you to discover stories buried deep in these historic mountains, ghost towns, beaches and coastlines.
Begin your journey by exploring our sites here. On each site, you will find historic overviews, travel information, maps and photos to over 50 heritage sites. Then plan a visit to these sites with our tips and pointers.
What secrets will you find?
