With the recent revision of the Order of the Solano County Health Officer amending the April 24, 2020, Shelter at Home Order No. 2020-5 to include outdoor recreation as an essential activity, Solano Land Trust loosens restrictions for access to natural parks and open spaces effective immediately.
Some areas and activities will continue to be limited to reduce potential spread of COVID-19 including picnic areas and the Rush Ranch Nature Center, which will remain closed until further notice. Bathroom facilities at all sites except for Jepson Prairie Preserve, will be open. Some docent and volunteer led activities will resume with limitations on the number of attendees and social distancing practices in place. Please visit our property web pages for most up-to-date information.
Solano Land Trust encourages Solano County residents to get outside and enjoy the health benefits of nature in Solano County’s parks and open spaces and to also look for #nearbynature on neighborhood walks.
Please help us contain COVID-19 and protect ourselves and the public by following these recommendations from the CDC.
• Avoid entering the facility if you are feeling sick, or have a cough or fever
• Maintain a minimum six-foot distance from anyone who is not a household member
• Sneeze and cough into a cloth or tissue or, if not available, into one's elbow
• Not shake hands or engage in any unnecessary physical contact
• Wearing a face covering is strongly recommended
• All picnic areas are closed for public use
