Greenbelt Alliance is celebrating 65 years of adventures.

Our Rush Ranch adventure begins with a hike along the Marsh Trail along the edge of Suisun Marsh, one of the best remaining examples of a brackish tidal marsh habitat in the United States. We'll explain how Greenbelt Alliance is working to preserve Bay Area wetlands and why they are important for climate resilience.

After lunch, we'll put out to pasture on the South Pasture Trail to view Patuin (Native American) grinding rocks and see what's blooming in the grassland.

After our hike, we'll visit the nature center and barn in this spectacular open space preserve owned by the Solano Land Trust.


This is a moderate hike of 4-1/2 miles on mostly level terrain.
