PLT members are invited to join us on Saturday, April 29th for a SPECIAL tour of our Swainson’s Grassland Preserve located in Lincoln. (this is being rescheduled from the original March date due to rain) Spend the morning with Land Manager Justin Wages as your tour guide, along with some assistance from our docent team.
Some areas of interest that will be covered include the restoration of the historic barn, the artificial burrowing owl nests, hopefully a glimpse at some vernal pools (which may still be full of water), and other improvements made to this beautiful preserve.
We will meet at the Swainson’s Grassland Preserve at 9:00am. Directions on where to meet will be emailed to you after registering to attend. Space is limited.
DISTANCE: There will be some walking involved as we show you the various areas of the preserve. It may be approximately one mile of walking on relatively flat, cow pasture land. There could be hoof holes in the ground as well as mud.
This is a wilderness outing in a natural setting: there are no restrooms, benches, or water available. The City of Lincoln is just minutes from the property, but once you’re on the tour you won’t be able to leave and come back. Please plan ahead and bring what you will need.
This is a “member-only” tour and there is no charge to attend. If you aren’t yet a Placer Land Trust member, you can join at http://www.placerlandtrust.org/member-sign-up/.
We have a “leave no trace” policy – if you pack it in, please pack it out.
Sorry, NO dogs are allowed on our Preserves, unless service animals.
We suggest you wear sturdy shoes or boots and clothing appropriate for the weather conditions. You may want a hat or sunscreen depending on the weather.
Bring water and snacks to enjoy along the way. Don’t forget your camera!
