DESCRIPTION: Join us for a hike on the King-Swett Ranches. This Solano Land Trust property is a protected expanse of hills and valleys between the cities of Vallejo, Benicia and Fairfield. This nearly 4000 acre expanse is only open on docent led hikes and includes a section of the Bay Area Ridge Trail. Learn about the wildlife that call this area home and the human history of the Ranches. Jasmine Westbrook, Project Manager for the Solano Land Trust, will join us for the hike to talk about range management, including the use of prescribed fire.
