Rodman Preserve

The field trip scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Rodman Preserve, 6350 Westlake Rd. Upper Lake, will be a joint venture including members of the Napa Solano Audubon and regular walkers that enjoy the Lake County Land Trust’s bi-monthly walk. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch to enjoy on the back porch of the Preserve’s nature center after the walk.

Please meet at a little before 9 a.m. at the Preserve’s nature center at the corner of Westlake and the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff. As we often caution, don’t confuse the Rodman Preserve with the County’s Rodman Slough Park. They are at two different locations. To get to the Preserve, turn left onto Westlake Rd. off of the Nice Lucerne Cutoff. If you stay on the Cutoff you will go over the Rodman Slough Bridge which is also the location of the County Park. If you go over the bridge, you are in the wrong place!

Because of the number of people expected to attend, we will have at least two leaders so the group may be divided if necessary. It should be a fun day. Expect to see raptors, probably some migrating songbirds, resident songbirds, and maybe even a coyote or two.

The Rodman Preserve is owned and operated by the Lake County Land Trust, a local charitable 501 (c) (3) that preserves habitat and open space in Lake County. The Rodman Preserve is a total of 234 acres made up of oak savannah, open meadows and wetlands. The Land Trust’s website is
