The Lake County Land Trust’s Rodman Preserve at 6350 Westlake Dr. near Upper Lake continues to welcome visitors. On Saturdays, hours will change from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Volunteers have noticed that most people prefer arriving later in the day during the colder months, so an effort is being made to accommodate them. The preserve offers a moderate one-and-a-half mile walk where visitors will see birdlife and even some mammals like foxes and coyotes.
A volunteer will open the gate at 10 a.m., and visitors are asked to sign in before embarking on a pleasant morning walk. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the walk and the open-air back porch.
Go to the Lake County Land Trust website at www.lakecountylandtrust.org for more information and don’t mistake the Rodman Preserve for the Rodman Slough County Park, which is down the road from the Preserve on the Nice/Lucerne cutoff.
