Many of the artifacts of the gold rush era can be seen in the J. J. Jackson Museum and Historic Park  in Weaverville. Chinese miners also left their mark on the county. The Joss House State Park  in Weaverville provides a rare glimpse into their lives during that tumultuous period. Trinity County also has a thriving art community.

Visit the Highland Art Center, or Main Street Gallery in Weaverville where local arts are proudly displayed, and local artists pursue their crafts.

Another very unique site in our county is the Rigdzin Ling, the North American seat of Chagdud Gonpa Foundation, an international Buddhist organization.  It is located in Junction City, just west of Weaverville.  This organization offers public talks & teachings by the resident lama, daily meditations and facilities for personal and group retreats.

The Trinity County Resource Conservation District  has a mission to assist people in protecting, managing, conserving, and restoring the natural resources of Trinity County through information, education, technical assistance, and project implementation programs.  The RCD envisions a balance between utilization and conservation of our natural resources. Through economic diversity and ecosystem management, our communities will achieve and sustain a quality environment and healthy economy.  With these goals in mind several projects have been completed to the benefit of the communities and visitors of Trinity County.  The Weaverville Community Forest contains the Weaver Basin Trail System which is about 40 miles of trails for use by walkers, horseback riders and mountain bikers. The Young Family Ranch provides gardening, nutrition and natural resource information for the county.
