This is the motto of a time that seems to have passed, however, it is still something that we all need to keep in mind to preserve the area’s historic contents. Thousands of years ago, Native American tribes, like the Sierra Miwok and Nisenan tribes, roamed the area, and evidence is still being found today. We all want it left for future generations to see and observe. Coloma is also the site of GOLD DISOVERY in California, in 1848. It is not uncommon to stumble across some of these pieces of our not too distant past. A lot of damage is caused by those few who ignore the above motto/rule. Also, note that actually touching some of these, the oils on your skin can cause damage.
