Nature walk planned Saturday at Lake Solano Park

From page A3 | July 10, 2013 |

Local residents are invited to join a free, guided nature walk at Lake Solano Park from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. Volunteers Cricket Kanouff and Kitty Van Newkoop will lead this short, easy-paced tour.

The group will explore the forest that borders the lake and they’ll discuss the wide variety of plants and animals that call this habitat home. In addition to this natural history, participants will reflect on how the water and forest were important to early Native American ways of life, and how modern towns and cities depend on these same resources.

Participants should wear layered clothes; sturdy, closed-toe shoes; and bring drinking water and protection from sun, wind, fog and rain. A camera, binoculars and a notebook for recording observations are also recommended. Snacks, bag lunches and picnics are welcomed as well.

Lake Solano Park is at 8685 Pleasants Valley Road, just off Highway 128 near Winters. The group will meet at 10 a.m. in front of the Nature Center, at the west entrance of the park. The 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. For questions in advance, call Kanouff at 707-451-7699. For same-day information, call 530-795-2990.
