Mare Island music event to boost shoreline preserve

By From page A12 | October 02, 2013

FAIRFIELD — Jazz, blues and rock ’n’ roll will be featured at the Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve fundraiser Saturday in Vallejo.

The event is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the preserve. A concert by Gary Arrustuto and Friends and a picnic potluck dinner will take place in the abandoned garden of the former Navy ammunition dump groundskeeper’s 1930s-era home, a half-mile along the preserve’s main trail.

Money raised will go to the preserve. For more information, please go to www.mareislandpreserve.org or call 249-9633.

Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve is located on the south side of the island. The abandoned garden is located on a hillside with views of Carquinez Strait and its bridges, Mount Diablo, Mare Island Strait and Vallejo.

The preserve is usually open 10 a.m. until one hour after sunset Friday through Sunday. Check the preserve website for updates. The preserve is staffed by volunteers of the Mare Island Heritage Trust.
