The next tour at Lake Solano, “Gender Identity Amongst the Birds, Bees and Beasties of Lake Solano Park,” is planned for Saturday, Oct. 14.

Why do male and female geese look so similar, but male and female ducks have wildly different appearances? How did scientists first explain the vast differences in Common Peafowl?

Explore these head-scratchers and more on a morning walk with Lake Solano Docent George Cartter. Meet at the Lake Solano Nature Center at 9 a.m. to begin the stroll and find some surprising differences between males and females (and some who aren’t quite either) of the Lake Solano Park flora and fauna. Loaner binoculars will be available.

This event is a great opportunity to have fun, learn, and get fresh air and exercise. Enjoy the beauty of this area as you stroll along Putah Creek and take the time to appreciate the diversity of life that exists there.

The activities are appropriate for all ages, and families and groups are welcome. Prepare for the weather and variable conditions by bringing water and wearing sturdy shoes. The tour will be rescheduled in the event of heavy rain.

Registering at is recommended but not required. The day’s activities are free, and parking is only $6 per vehicle, payable at the day use entrance to the Park, across the street from the Nature Center.

For more information, call Karin Young at Putah Creek Council, 795-3006.
