It has been a year since we stated our 501(c)3 nonprofit. It hasn’t been the easiest time, but we made it, with the help of the people around the county supporting us. Thank you very much, we hope that you feel it is worth the time and money.

Why do we call ourselves “The Heart of Trinity County?”

There are many parts of the body that are needed to make it function. Good or bad these parts keep it moving, thinking, and keeping it in balance. It has to be feed (visitors) with the right kind of food (money) to make the whole body strong and fit from top to bottom. There are some parts of the body you could lose and still function, but it is always better to keep a body whole and healthy. There is one part that the body cannot live without, the heart. That is why the volunteers at the Trinity County Chamber of Commerce would not think of closing the Visitor Center. We did, and still do, think this office is too important. We have to keep the whole body of Trinity County alive.

That is the only reason that we are here. It is too important!

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed a lot of our lives and moved events to another time or not at all, but we will do our best to keep you informed about the upcoming events. Hopefully this all goes away as fast as it came.

In February we had 365 walk-ins and 234 phone calls looking for information. There have been a lot of people coming up from Redding, which is nice to see.

Over the past year we have had over 3,382 walk-ins and more than 2,767 phone calls.

Would you like help promoting your events? That is one of our many goals!

We are handing out Trinity County 2020 Calendar of Events. The online calendar is updated regularly, so check for new events and contact information at our website.

If you or your organizations have events coming up please let us know so we can help get the word out. Check out our Facebook page; we have several hundred followers who may be interested in attending or just spreading the information.  A tip to help us share your events on Facebook; if you post your events as an Event, it is easier to share and easier for people to get reminders.

If you are interested in helping with our online presence, we would love to talk with you, anything from working on the website, Facebook, Twitter, Patreon, pictures for online, or a blog post.

If you have ideas to help keep the lights on, we would love to hear those, too.

Thank you for your ongoing support. If you would like to donate, please make checks payable to Trinity County Visitor Center, P.O. Box 699, Weaverville, CA 96093, or come in and see us at 509 Main St. in Weaverville (under the spiral stairs) or donate at our website,

As always, we welcome volunteers to help here at the center and/or events. Please call 623-6101 or drop by.
