A jewel in the hills above Berkeley, Tilden Park is one of the premier recreational centers for the San Francisco Bay Area. Spread across more than two thousand acres, the property's thirty-nine miles of trails, two lakes and nature area offer an escape from urban life. Entertaining amenities include a golf course, a carousel and a miniature steam train. The rich history of this special place features native tribes, eucalyptus growers and secret military operations. Author Richard Langs presents the stories and the people behind the development and preservation of one of the oldest and most beloved regional parks.

After retiring from a thirty-year career providing financial expertise to the transportation industry, Richard Langs returned to his two favorite hobbies: photography and golf. Tilden Regional Park Golf Course became the center of his new world. He has run the all-volunteer Ambassador Program at the Tilden course for the past decade and has provided his photographic skills for Northern California charity events run by local golf course operators. He lives in Oakland, California.

$12 ticket includes luncheon with wine.
