By From page A3 | February 09, 2014

SUISUN CITY — A guided walk at Rush Ranch on Feb. 15 will focus on the Patwin Indians, who were the first human inhabitants of Suisun Marsh.

The hike will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the open space area in Suisun Marsh. Participants will see an outcropping used for grinding fish and acorns and an example of a Patwin dwelling. They will learn what a typical day might have been like for a Patwin.

Rush Ranch is located at 3521 Grizzly Island Road in Suisun Marsh, about 2 miles south of the Highway 12 and Suisun City. For more information, send an email to [email protected] or call 432-0150, ext. 200.

Rush Ranch is owned and operated by Solano Land Trust, in partnership with the Rush Ranch Educational Council, Access Adventure and the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
