PUTAH CREEK COUNCIL & SOLANO COUNTY PARKS —  Lake Solano County Park
Why do male and female geese look so similar, but male and female ducks have wildly different appearances? How did early ecologists explain the vast differences in Common Peafowl? What other creatures at Lake Solano Park have such odd couples? Explore these head-scratchers and more on a morning walk with Lake Solano Docent George Cartter. Meet at the Nature Center at 9 AM to begin your stroll and find some surprising differences between males and females (and some who aren't quite either) of the Lake Solano Park flora and fauna. Loaner binoculars will be available. For questions, call Karin Young at Putah Creek Council, 530-795-3006.
