Nature Hike at Lake Solano

Learn about history and plant life

Join volunteers Cricket Kanouff and Kitty Van Newkoop on Saturday, for a walk along the Shoreline Trail to learn about the history and plant life along Putah Creek.

Walk back through the mists of time to learn about the Patwin Indians, the Berryessa brothers and John Wolfskill’s impact on the region.

Enjoy the beauty of nature; the lake and its surroundings. 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.

You may also spot a Great Blue Heron, a snowy egret, a peacock in all its feathered glory or other wildlife on the tour. Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and water are recommended for this walk.

Visitors meet at 10 a.m. at the Lake Solano Park Nature Center at 8685 Pleasants Valley Road Winters. The presentation is free, and parking is only $5 per vehicle, payable across the road at the entrance to the day-use area.

No RSVP is necessary. For questions call 707-432-0150 x200or email volunteer@solanolandtrust.org.  For same-day information, call 530-795-2990.
