Ron Johnson of Kamiah will talk about his years working as a surveyor during a presentation beginning at 2 p.m. July 7 in the Welcome Center along Kamiah’s Main Street.
In March, Johnson donated some old surveying equipment to the Kamiah Valley Museum. One of the pieces is a late-1950s portable Geodimeter distance meter with a tripod. This expensive piece of equipment was one of only a few made in Sweden, and the instruments were commonly shared internationally among different countries as needed, according to a news release.
He will tell attendees about his job experiences as a surveyor as well as some of the equipment he has used over the years, and talk about what it was like to do the job in the early years of surveying. The equipment will be on display during the presentation.
Refreshments will be provided.
