Auburn Artist and Environmental Planner

—1948-2003 —

Dedicated to Susan Cooley-Gilliom

This was Susan's favorite spot for photographing and painting the South Yuba River, which she cherished in all season. When Placer Legacy first began negotiations to preserve this land, Susan was a key supporter and pledged a major portion of the necessary funding. This early commitment sustained momentum during negotiations and was critical to the final acquisition.
Susan's last trip out of the house during her battle with cancer included a stop here. Her presence will always be felt by this who pause to take in the beauty of the river or the fall colors and especially by other artists drawn to this scene.
