Lake Solano County Park
Interpretative Trail and Restoration Program
Using grant funding from several different sources, Solano RCD has been working with the Solano County Parks to improve the interpretive trails and wildlife habitat at Lake Solano County Park.
Fish & Wildlife Propagation Grant funds were used to develop an interpretive trail betweenˇthe campground and Lake Solano. The newly-improved Shorelineˇtrail features kiosks, a self-guided brochure, and 14 numbered stops, giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the plants and animals found in the Park. Solano RCD also works with Park docents who lead educational walks at the Park for visitors.
Volunteers at Lake Solano County Park.Solano RCD staff have herbicide-treated and removed hundreds of invasive trees of heaven that used to dominate many areas of the park. Tree of heaven is known to alter soil chemistry and prevent native plants from growing. In their place, a wide variety of native trees and shrubs have been planted that will greatly improve wildlife habitat in the park. These restoration efforts have been funded by grants from the CA Dept of Food and Agriculture and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
