SOLANO LAND TRUST & SOLANO COUNTY PARKS —  Lynch Canyon Open Space Park
Solano Land Trust and Solano County Parks are proud to present this popular series of birds of prey hikes of the winter migration season led by California Naturalist Larry Broderick of West County Hawkwatch. Lynch Canyon is home to golden eagles and hawks. It is also a magnet for migrating and over-wintering birds of prey. It provides them with over 1,000 undeveloped acres where they can hunt and rest. Some feathered visitors come from as far away as the Arctic Circle. This hike will be between 4-6 miles. Meet in the parking lot. Space is limited. The guided hike is $10 per person. You can pay online when registering, or bring cash/check, payable to Solano Land Trust. For more information or to register, visit the event page online.
