With the hope of bringing more wild, and beautiful, things to the citizens of Winters, the Putah Creek Council is expanding into a former Solano County nursery.

The move into the former Sackett Ranch nursery by Lake Solano will give the nonprofit stewards of Putah Creek more than 70 acres to expand their nursery, restoration and education programs, explained Kenny Liner, executive director of the Putah Creek Council.

The Solano County Board of Supervisors agreed to pay half of the $2.7 million purchase price. The Solano County Water Agency (SCWA) will pay the other half.

“SCWA saw the potential of the property and knew its value in their own restoration efforts along Putah Creek,” Said Roland Sanford, SCWA General Manager. “Sackett Ranch is a treasure whose value to the community, from so many different perspectives, will only increase with time.”

“The future is looking very bright for Putah Creek Council. This was the missing piece that will propel the Council towards its larger, long-term strategic goals,” Liner said.

“Everyone at the Council is so grateful for this opportunity to reach heights never before achieved by our organization. We can’t wait to continue serving the community from this new space and expand our role of watershed protection,” he added.

Although the move to Sackett Ranch will include leaving their current spot downtown, Putah Creek Council has a long-term goal of having several community hubs to re-establish a presence downtown in the future.
