The Lake County Land Trust is continuing to open its Rodman Preserve at 6350 Westlake Road for weekly Saturday walks. For the winter schedule gates will open at 9 a.m. when visitors are welcome to arrive.
These will be self-guided walks from 9 a.m. to noon. A Land Trust volunteer will be present at the Nature Center to welcome guests. The Land Trust is still honoring Covid-19 restrictions and the small nature center is closed to the public. Please observe Covid-19 protocol and wear a mask when passing others on the trails.
The walk at Rodman Preserve is a moderate walk on well-groomed trails. Total distance is about a mile and half and sturdy walking shoes, water, and hat are highly recommended. Bring your binoculars to enjoy views of songbirds, raptors, and water fowl.
For information, call the Lake County Land Trust at 262-0707 and leave a message or email firstname.lastname@example.org. And don’t mistake the Lake County Rodman Slough County Park (which is down the road from the preserve on the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff) with the Rodman Preserve which is a left turn off of the cutoff onto Westlake Road.
