About Us

California DAR volunteering

The Golden Nugget Chapter, NSDAR, got its name because the largest gold nugget ever found in California was discovered in the town of Magalia in 1859. It weighed an amazing 54 pounds, of which 49.5 ounces was pure gold. Most chapter members are from the Paradise area, though some members are from other areas as well. Local residency is not a requirement for membership in any chapter.
