LITTLE LANDERS HISTORICAL SOCIETY THE DEBRIS FLOWS OF 1934 AND 1978
The Little Landers Historical Society will present “The Debris Flows of 1934 and 1978” on Saturday, June 12 at 1:00 p.m. After the fires come the rains, then everything slides down the mountains. It has happened many times before. The speaker for this informative and historical presentation is Art Cobery, long time foothills resident and historian. Through pictures and stories, Cobery will recount two very devastating floods affecting the local area. In the days before flood control channels and round-the-clock news alerts, people were unaware that a wall of debris was headed their way and many people died. Anyone living in the foothills will be able to relate to this presentation. This is a free program. Everyone is welcome.
Bolton Hall Museum is located at 10110 Commerce Ave. in Tujunga.
Additional information is available from the Little Landers Historical Society, (818) 352-3420 or email: email@example.com or the website: www.littlelandershistoricalsociety.org.
