UC Riverside student Lily Maldonado speaks on a guided tour

As part of the Relevancy and History Project, California State Parks partnered with the Public History Program at the University of California, Riverside to offer classes to undergraduate and graduate students. Students worked in collaboration with community members and Park staff to conduct research and develop historical contexts of im/migration in the Inland Empire for use by the park. By the end of the course, students produced work including audio guides, digital essays, oral histories, and a walking tour of the groves. Public History students at California State University, San Bernardino also participated by conducting surveys with park stakeholders and visitors and compiling research on citrus in the region.
