Historic Mare Island Navy Cemetery Tour   Saturday,  FEB  10, 2018
12:00 PM

MARE ISLAND HERITAGE TRUST —  Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve
The cemetery on Mare Island is the Navy's oldest cemetery in the West, with graves there dating back to the 1850's. Park at the Visitor's Center and meet at the cemetery, just a few hundred feet up the trail. We will be offering two tours, one starting at 12pm, and the other at 1pm. Realistically, 40 people is the maximum number at this time for each tour. If there are more than 40 people that arrive BY NOON for the first tour, we will ask folks who arrive after that to join us for the 2nd tour at 1pm. We hope you understand, and we will try to accommodate everyone. And if more people show up, we will add another tour, starting at 2pm. We hope this will be a monthly event on second Saturdays. Please give us a call at 707-241-4285 if you have any questions about the tours. The event is free, but your donations to the Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve are always encouraged, and help keep the park going!

SOLANO RESOURCE CONSERVATION DISTRICT —  Pond C
Solano RCD is hosting volunteer events to plant native plants this winter. We will be working from 12:30-3:30. We will be planting many different types of rushes and sedges (as well as a few wildflowers) to improve the bio-filtration processes at the Pond C wetlands. These natives will also beautify the wetland and improve its wildlife habitat. We will provide all necessary tools, work gloves, and snacks. All of these events are family friendly, but we do ask that children under the age of 14 work closely with an adult. Please RSVP by email if you are interested in participating.
