EcoRing needs a research assistent to help research history of people and properties involved with the North Pacific Coast Railroad. We wish to convert this abandoned 19th century narrow-guage steam-powered railroad route into a multi-use history trail from Sausalito in Marin County to Cazadero in Sonoma County, 94 miles. This opportunity involves research into archives of historical societies, newspapers, and county records. It may include some interviews with elderly people with direct knowledge of the people and places under investigation. Some report wriing involved.
