SOLANO LAND TRUST —  Jepson Prairie
Jepson Prairie Preserve is one of California’s best remaining examples of a vernal pool ecosystem and native grassland prairie. Dry and dormant most of the year, the prairie is transformed by winter rains into a tapestry of stunning colors, and its vernal pools host a rich diversity of rare aquatic life. Visitors can enjoy an easy guided walk which may include portions of the Preserve that are only accessible with a Jepson Prairie docent. Participants can learn about vernal pools and see the aquatic invertebrate and flowering plants that depend on them. Volunteer docents offer these two-hour tours every Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 a.m., March 10 through May 13 (Mother’s Day). For groups of 6 or more, RSVP to Kate Mawdsley at email or 530-758-5093. A minimum $5 donation is encouraged to attend this tour.

Annual Easter Golfball Hunt & Easter Egg Exchange   Sunday,  APR  21, 2019
2:00 PM

MARE ISLAND SHORELINE HERITAGE PRESERVE —  Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve
Children and their families have always had a blast collecting not Easter eggs, but golf balls that have flown over from the Mare Island Golf Club in their baskets. Kids return the balls to us in trade for a bag of Easter treats. Rest assured, we’ve learned that the most fun for them is the collecting. The Hunt takes place in the mowed field near our visitor center. Just like our wildlands Preserve on Mare Island, nothing ordinary about this Easter event! Feel free to plan to have an Easter picnic before or after in one of our picnic areas or at the visitor center with plenty of tables and chairs and a propane grill. Help us keep events like this and our park free by donating what you can.
