On September 27, 2014, the VHNA will hold its monthly meeting at the Bay Terrace Theater, 51 Daniels Avenue in Vallejo, from 10 am to 12 noon. We are pleased that Nicole Byrd, Executive Director of the Solano Land Trust (SLT), will make a presentation on the SLT, its purpose and programs.
Since being founded in 1986, the SLT has permanently protected 22,161 acres of natural areas and agricultural lands that include Jepson Prairie Preserve, King-Swett Ranches, Lynch Canyon, Rush Ranch and Rockville Trails. These lands contain rare vernal pools, tidal marsh wetlands, rolling serpentine grasslands and provide an open space buffer zone between Vallejo, Benicia and Fairfield.
Please mark your calendar to attend the meeting to learn about the SLT partnership with landowners, state and federal agencies, cattle and sheep ranchers, and non profits. Ms. Byrd will explain how the SLT works to protect and preserve Solano County’s farms and ranchlands and open space for now and into the future. Refreshments and Moschetti coffee are provided by the VHNA and its members. We look forward to seeing you at the VHNA meeting on September 27.Board of Directors
