Visitors are invited to stroll along the Shoreline Trail of Lake Solano Park west of Winters from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday with volunteers Cricket Kanouff and Kitty Van Newkoop.

Guests will learn about the Patwin Indians, the Berryessa brothers and John Wolfskill’s impact on the region. They’ll also discover how Putah Creek was transformed into Lake Solano, bringing water to farmers and residents of Solano County.

“Learn about the native trees and plants, and some of their medicinal secrets, passed down through the generations by Native Americans,” a news release said. “You may have the good fortune of spotting a great blue heron, a snowy egret, a peacock in all its feathered glory, or other wildlife on the tour.”

Lake Solano Park & Campground is at 8685 Pleasants Valley Road, just off Highway 128 west of Winters. Meet Kanouff and Van Newkoop at 10 a.m. in front of the Nature Center at the west entrance of the park. Their presentation is free, but parking costs $5 per vehicle, payable at the east entrance of the park, on the other side of Pleasants Valley Road.

No RSVP is necessary, but note that the walk is canceled if it rains. For questions in advance, call 707-451-7699. For same-day information, call 530-795-2990.
