Cache Creek: A people’s RESTORE/RESTORY

In Fall 2012, the UC Davis Art of Regional Change, in partnership with the Cache Creek Conservancy, held a festival to celebrate the completion of a collaborative, multimedia project titled “Restore/Restory: A People’s History of the Cache Creek Nature Preserve.” The afternoon festival served to unveil a website devoted to the preserve’s history and to showcase the stories of Yolo County’s peoples, traditions and relationship to the land through audio tours, interactive art murals, nature and culture walks, and story circles.

“We have involved over 200 residents in co-creating a public history that brings to life a mosaic of experiences with a place we have in common. The preserve is a tangible reminder of our past,” said Project Director jesikah maria ross. “While the preserve may not be known for a single historic event, witnessing its social and ecological history helps us understand who we are and consider the lessons learned as we move forward as a community.”

The storytelling project, a culmination of nearly two years of collaboration among UC Davis students, faculty and artists with members of the Cache Creek Conservancy as well as a cross-section of Yolo County residents, lives on as a collection of digital installa- tions consisting of a story map, audio tours, digital murals, and a timeline of images, maps and historical documents, on the project’s website:

A joint collaboration between the UC Davis Art of Regional Change and the Cache Creek Conservancy, the Restore/Restory Festival was funded by the UC Humanities Research Institute with additional support from Tuleyome, Capay Valley Vision, Putah Creek Council, and the Yolo County Historical Society. The Restore/Restory multimedia project was funded by the UC Institute for Research in the Arts and the Quitalpás Foundation.
