Rush Ranch Open Space
3521 Grizzly Island Rd, Suisun City, CA 94585
Come to Rush Ranch to learn about science while walking near the edge of a wild wetland. Join scientist and educator Sarah Ferner from San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve for a guided walk near the edge of Suisun Marsh during one of the highest high tides of the year – a King Tide. Nature should put on a quietly beautiful show as the rising tide slowly floods the marsh. We will learn about Rush Ranch’s marshes, scientific research occurring there, and what King Tides can teach us about sea level rise.
Registration required: Registration through the Solano Land Trust is required.
What to be prepared for: Please dress appropriately for weather, including walking on trails that will likely be wet or muddy and standing still in windy conditions. This event is primarily for adults. Heavy rain may cancel.
