Land trust schedules Jepson Prairie plant monitoring event

By From page A3 | March 13, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Volunteers are being sought by the Solano Land Trust to monitor vegetation at Jepson Prairie.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to about 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. March 21. It will take place at the Jepson Prairie vernal pool reserve on Highway 113 at Cook Lane in eastern Solano County.

Volunteers should expect to walk 2 to 3 miles off trail, on flat but uneven terrain, monitoring plants the whole way. They will work in teams of three to four people and look at the selected native plants as well as selected weeds. They need not have prior knowledge of plants.

Those who want to help should call Ken Poerner, Solano Land Trust land steward, at 580-6277 or contact him by email at [email protected]
