The Oregon-California Trails Association and the California/Nevada Chapter of OCTA present “Through the Lens of History – Preserving the Past – Focusing on the Future” from Monday, September 13 through Thursday, September 16. The Elko Convention Center at 700 Moren Way in Elko is convention HQ, with additional events occurring at the California Trail Center and Great Basin College.

The convention will focus on the Humboldt River corridor as the main branch of the California Trail heading west from Missouri to California, including its usage by American Indians for thousands of years prior to usage by emigrants. The convention will explore each of these different eras via tours throughout the region, a premiere list of authoritative speakers, and events at other local sites. For more info, visit
