Join the Solano Land Trust Raptor Team for a tour featuring resident, migrating and over-wintering birds of prey at Lynch Canyon on Saturday, November 10 from 10am to 2pm. Take advantage of this special opportunity to discover, observe and learn about eagles, hawks and other raptors because the park is otherwise closed to the public until mid-March. Previous sightings include golden eagles, Cooper’s hawks, ferruginous hawks, American kestrels, white-tailed kites, red-tailed hawks, Northern harriers and a bald eagle.
All ages are welcome, but participants must be prepared for a moderate pace covering about 4 miles, possibly off-trail in places, up and down rugged, steep, and slippery hills that are full of sticky seeds, thorny plants and thistle, and passing free range cattle along the way.
Bring a backpack with plenty of water and snacks, boots or sturdy closed-toe shoes with tread for rough, steep and slippery terrain, long, sturdy pants and layered clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, protection from sun, wind, fog and rain, and cash for a donation (suggested but not required). Also recommended: binoculars, a camera, bug repellent and hiking sticks.
RSVP requested (not required) to Mary Beth at 707-685-5908, or firstname.lastname@example.org
DIRECTIONS. Meet in the Lynch Canyon parking lot at 10am sharp. Since Lynch Canyon is otherwise closed, the gate will be locked except for the tour’s 10am start time and 2pm end time.
Constant or heavy rain cancels the hike. Call (707) 685-5908 if the weather is uncertain.
