HOLE IN THE HEAD  Exhibit at the Sonoma County Museum

Fifty years ago, On October 30, 1964, PG & E announced that they would no longer pursue plans for a nuclear power plant at Bodega Head on the Sonoma County Coast. It was certainly the end of something—the closing of a passionate battle that brought about a resolution in favor of an active group of citizens who opposed the plant. However, the close of the struggle was more a beginning than an end. Focused though it was on the small spit of land that forms Bodega Bay, the battle over the nuclear power plant, which took place roughly between 1958 and 1964, had tremendous reverberations. Don’t miss this stellar exhibit on the battle to stop plans for a nuclear power plant on Sonoma County’s coast and the resulting creation of COAST, a key environmental group that helped protect the coastline and beaches we all love.
