It is the season of gratitude -
and we are pausing to say that we are grateful
for your friendship and support, and for
the confidence you have shown in us.
Thank you for supporting land and conservation
in Solano County. We wish you a happy
and healthy Thanksgiving!

& Board of Directors

 
 

In recognition of the Thanksgiving holiday,
the Solano Land Trust office
will be closed Thursday and Friday,
but you can still enjoy our properties!


 
 
 
 
 

We are participating in #Giving Tuesday, December 2nd!

What is #Giving Tuesday? It takes place the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and aims to counterbalance the excessive spending from "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday". It is a day dedicated to giving and a movement to kick-off the holiday giving season.

Let your family and friends know so they can support us on the Day of Giving. Ask them to join you in supporting Solano Land Trust by donating on December 2nd. You can click on the "Join Today" button above. It's that easy!

year-round!


Science on the Land

Taking a closer look at
bluebird boxes at Lynch Canyon

Have you ever wondered who lives in the bird boxes along several trails at Lynch Canyon? The boxes were built for Western bluebirds and installed by Boy Scouts and other volunteers, but regular monitoring and maintenance of the boxes had never been done, so Solano Land Trust engaged sixteen citizen scientists to answer that question for us.

Want to learn more or join the monitoring program? Earl will lead training sessions for new volunteers in February 2015. As part of our regular Citizen Science Friday programs, we will be cleaning boxes and erecting new ones. Solano Land Trust is seeking citizen scientists (and a leader) to monitor new bluebird boxes installed at Rush Ranch, and woodworkers to help build and repair boxes.

Please contact Sue Wickham, Solano Land Trust Project Manager, at (707) 432-0150, ext. 207 or sue@solanolandtrust.org for more information.
