In 1860, a black prospector named Antoine Etienne mined for gold in Peshastin Creek and the creek that now bears his name. Reports claim that he found $1,100 worth of gold, which would be worth over $100,000 today. Who was Antoine Etienne? In this presentation we will explore what we know about this fascinating Washington pioneer and trace his travels from Oregon City to the Wenatchee Valley and Entiat, and then to Prosser. We will also look at the area's flora and how Etienne Creek was renamed in 2009.

Don Schaechtel lives in Leavenworth and is a past president the Washington Native Plant Society. In 2020, Don took an interest in the life of Antoine Etienne. He discovered a fascinating story, which he will share with us. You will also enjoy learning about the flora of Etienne Creek, which as a plant list with over 200 species.

This is a FREE event with a donation basket at the door.
Doors open at 6:30pm for a community social with beer and wine available for purchase. The presentation will start at 7:00pm.
