Guest Post: Lynch Canyon Field Trip with Nature Journal Club

John Muir Laws' website says:

"Enter into Lynch Canyon’s 1,039 acres to explore rolling grasslands, spring wildflowers, oak woodlands and spectacular views. The area is rich in human history – from Native Americans, to pioneers, to the not-so-distant past when Lynch Canyon was slated to become a landfill, to today with its permanent protection and status as a working ranch and natural park. Lynch Canyon is owned by Solano Land Trust, a 501(c)3 public benefit organization that permanently protects natural areas, working farms, and ranchlands in Solano County and connects our community to these lands.

DIRECTIONS

From San Francisco / I-80 East between Vallejo and Fairfield:
Take the American Canyon/Hiddenbrooke exit. Go south toward Hiddenbrooke Parkway. Just before entering the Hiddenbrooke development, turn east (left) on McGary Road (frontage road that runs parallel to I-80). Follow McGary Road for 1.6 miles to where it intersects with Lynch Road. Turn left on Lynch Road, go under the I-80 underpass, and proceed through the gate at the end of the cul-de-sac to the gravel parking lot. See map

From Sacramento / I-80 West between Fairfield and Vallejo:
Take the Red Top Road exit. Go south (left) under the underpass. In less than 0.1 mile, turn right on McGary Road (frontage road that runs parallel to I-80). Follow McGary Road for 1.8 miles. Turn right on Lynch Road, go under the I-80 underpass, and proceed through the gate at the end of the cul-de-sac to the gravel parking lot. 

Please carpool if possible. There is a parking fee of $5 per motorized vehicle."

If rain is in the forecast, check Jack's website the night before for changes of plans.

Note that this is a "Guest Post": not an official SF Sketchers event, but a sketching event that I think a lot of us would enjoy.
