SUISUN CITY — Spring begins Thursday and local hikers can celebrate the equinox with a guided hike of the Suisun Marsh at Rush Ranch.
The hike is easy and moderately paced. Bring water, snacks, sturdy closed-toe shoes, layered clothing and protection from the elements. No RSVP is necessary. Meet the guides by 9:45 a.m. in the brick courtyard and native plant garden, next to the Nature Center exhibit.
The Suisun Marsh is the largest contiguous brackish water marsh remaining on the West Coast of North America and is a crucial part of the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary ecosystem. Rush Ranch is located at 3521 Grizzly Island Road, about 2 miles south of the Highway 12 intersection with Sunset Avenue and Grizzly Island Road.
