From page A3 | January 19, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — A bird-of-prey migration hike is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 1 at Lynch Canyon Open Space Park.

Larry Broderick will lead the hike and offer raptor identification tips. Birds seen on previous hikes include Cooper’s hawks, bald eagles, rough-legged hawks, sharp-shinned hawks, ferruginous hawks, peregrine falcons, prairie falcons and other more common birds of prey.

Participants should be prepared for a moderately paced, 4-mile hike, possibly off-trail in places, up and down hills that have sticky seeds, thorny plants and thistle and to pass free-range cattle along the way.

People who want to attend should contact Mary Beth Crittendon at mbcrittendon@comcast.net or 685-5908.

Lynch Canyon Open Space Park is located in the hills between Fairfield and Vallejo along Interstate 80 and can be reached by taking McGary Road to Lynch Road. Go to www.solanolandtrust.org for more information.

    Every time I see an event happening at Lynch Canyon I think of how close it came to being a garbage dump. This year 2014, will mark the 30th anniversary of the fight to keep Lynch Canyon pure and beautiful. Still, no honor has ever been given to Juanita Schiel, now deceased, who headed up that campaign. Joan Palmer, a local American Indian worked in the background. Barry, maybe you can do an article about that.
