Among the many ways we support the community is by hosting Breakfasts with History.  In this lecture series, knowledgeable speakers provide insight into the varied and interesting history of life in the Santa Cruz River Valley. 

In the spring, the society celebrates with an Annual Picnic at a historic site. Also, periodically we sponsor field trips to archaeological and historical sites.
