Lynch Canyon to offer guided hike

By From page A1 | February 19, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A hike that focuses on birds of prey such as golden eagles, peregrine falcons and Cooper’s hawks will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 2 at Lynch Canyon open space.

Larry Broderick and the Solano Land Trust raptor team will lead the hike. Participants should be prepared to cover 4 miles at a moderate pace, possibly off-trail at times, an event press release said.

Those who want to attend should contact Mary Beth Crittendon [email protected] or 685-5908. They will meet at the Lynch Canyon parking lot and should bring $5 for the parking fee.

Lynch Canyon is 1,039 acres along Interstate 80 in the hills between Fairfield and Vallejo. The preserve is owned by the Land Trust and run as a park by Solano County. It can be reached by taking McGary Road to Lynch Road. Please go to www.solanolandtrust.org for further information.

    Every time I see an article about Lynch Canyon I am reminded that 30 years ago (1984) the Solano County Board of Supervisors voted to turn the canyon into a garbage dump in order to import garbage for big fees. "Not in my backyard", said Juanita Schiel, with the assistance of Joan Martin and many volunteers, brought an intitative to the voters to overturn the supervisors decision. Today, Lynch Canyon is open space and Juanita Schiel is deceased.....I wonder if she will ever be honored for her work in saving Lynch Canyon!
