Trees & Traditions
Thank you for a wonderful Trees & Traditions fundraiser at the Sutter County Museum on December 2nd! We appreciated seeing so many guests enjoying the Museum and celebrating the season. Whether you sponsored Trees & Traditions, donated in-kind prizes or services, attended the event, or volunteered to make it all happen, we were so grateful and humbled to see the community support for the work that we do at the Museum! All of the funds raised go directly to the Community Memorial Museum Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Unbroken Traditions: Basketweavers of the Meadows-Baker Family in Northern California Reception
Friday March 3rd, 6-8pm
Basketry traditions are often passed down through generations, with basketweavers incorporating their own personal and cultural connections to the land. The baskets featured in this exhibit were made by several generations of women from the Meadows-Baker family. Many members were Mountain Maidu, and their baskets drew from a deep understanding of ecology, incorporated intricate weaving techniques, and employed creative and meaningful design elements.
