The Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association (AMIA) is a non-profit association cooperating with the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation

Anderson Marsh State Historic Park

The Park is located at the southeast corner of Clear Lake, at the formation of Cache Creek, on Hwy 53 between the Cities of Lower Lake and Clearlake, in Lake County, California. Clear Lake is the largest natural lake wholly within the borders of California. Consisting of nearly 1000 acres, the Park contains archeological sites of the Southeastern Pomo that are at least 10,000 years old, as well as a 19th Century Ranch House and Barn complex. The Park includes a nature preserve that embraces hundreds of acres of valuable wildlife habitat and Tule marsh, with one of the largest Great Blue Heron Rookeries on Clear Lake. There are hiking and boating trails that allow the visitor to experience several protected habitats within the Park, including freshwater marsh, oak woodland, grasslands and riparian woodland.

Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association Is Working to "Fill the Gap"

With the State Parks budget once more being cut do to economic conditions, AMIA has stepped up to fill the gap.  AMIA is continuing to create new exhibits for the South Barn Interpretive Center to be used during school field trips and park tours.  Our latest edition is a series of exhibits that discusses some of the birds that are resident in the park.

In the absence of State Parks Interpretive staff, AMIA has also once more organized a series of "Senior Days" that will provide a series of entertaining and educational presentations to Lake County seniors about the park's cultural and natural history. More information about the 2024 Senior Days HERE.
