Get Orientated at WildLake Ranch - Volunteer Opportunity

Lots going on at WildLake Ranch in Napa County on this day, including another one of their brief lake-side orientation meetings in the afternoon.

But let's start with the good stuff:

Wildlake Workday

Visit the beautiful Dunn-Wildlake Preserve to help with habitat restoration efforts. Be prepared with close-toed shoes, long pants and long sleeves, sun protection and drinking water. This event may include a hike of up to two miles. Meeting location information will be sent once you register. The event will run from 8:30am-12pm. 

If you would like to access the Dunn-Wildlake and Duff Ranch Preserves outside of LTNC guided events in the future, you can opt to stay for the visitor orientation which will follow the work day from 1pm-2pm.Sunday, October 13, 2013

If you want to participate in this you must register with the Land Trust of Napa County prior to RSVP'ing.  (Once you get to the Land Trust site, click on Activities, then Field Trips, to get to the Oct. 13 event):

If you would like to access the Dunn-Wildlake and Duff Ranch Preserves outside of LTNC guided events in the future, you can opt to stay for the visitor orientation which will follow the work day from 1pm-2pm.

Again, you must pre-register with the LTNC here before you RSVP:

Field Trip Registration for both events will close at 2pm, 3 days prior to the event.

Depending on how many volunteers they get, I may lead a hike either in the morning or afternoon for those Wanderers coming for the orientation.  But, for this occasion, priority will be given to those who also come to volunteer.  Wanderers who have been to this property know what a treasure it is.  Now it's our turn to give back a little. 

Details on when and where to meet will be given to you when you register for either the volunteer day or orientation meeting.

    Thanks so much to Brenda and Charles for joining me on this one! The Wanderers had excellent representation, comprising 1/2 of all the volunteers who showed up! And the work-site was wonderful, down in the bottom of beautiful Bell Canyon with a lovely hike both down and back up. And we did some serious damage to the invasive blackberries......good work, guys!

    I never received directions that were to be distributed after signing up, so unfortunately I won't be attending.

    Oh boy, this one is going to be fun! Turns out we'll be starting (parking) at Poppy Flat, which is about a mile before the lake, then hiking down into beautiful Bell Canyon, where we'll pull invasive blackberries out for about an hour and a half, before heading back up to the cars....or we could hike back via Rattlesnake Ridge. Registration with the Land Trust has closed, but I'm sure they won't turn any volunteers away....so feel free to come join us. I'll send directions to anyone who signs up.

    Hi,
    I would love to volunteer, but wasn't able to sign up on the Land Trust website. Please let me know if I can come or not. Thanks!

      Hi Elaine, I didn't get your note in time to sign up on the website, so I've changed my RSVP. Hopefully, I'll see the sign up date more in advance next time! Thanks, Brook

    Thanx for the encouragement to try again. It worked! I'm a member of the club. And I'll come anyway.

    When I tried to register with the Land Trust the site said the orientation was full up and there wasn't any more room. Do I come anyway?

    September 30, 2013

    • Elaine d.

      Try again, Charles. I had accidentally linked to the event that was last weekend, which is why it said closed. When I just checked the link above, it indicated it was open for both the work-day and the orientation.
