LOWER LAKE, Calif. – Anderson Marsh State Historic Park remains open and the Anderson Marsh Interpretive Association (AMIA) continues to hold its monthly guided nature walks, followed by a tour of the Historic Ranch House Museum, on the second Saturday of the month.
The next walk is scheduled for the morning of Saturday, June 9.
Retired Park Ranger Tom Nixon will lead the June nature walk.
This walk is not completely ADA accessible. The walk will be ADA accessible from the ranch house to where the Cache Creek boardwalk ends at the Creek.
For those who are able, Tom will continue on after the boardwalk, heading towards Lewis Ridge, while park docent and AMIA volunteer Gae Henry will guide the return to the Ranch House via the ADA trail.
Bring your binoculars and meet in front of the ranch house at 8:15 a.m. for time to experience the early morning wildlife to be found in the Ranch House and Barn complex yard. The walk begins at 8:30 a.m.
Experience the park with Nixon as he shares his knowledge of the geologic, natural and American Indian history of the area as well as the European Immigrant experience.
Park docents Gae Henry and Henry Bornstein will lead a tour of the historic ranch house museum immediately after the walk. If rain cancels the walk, the ranch tour will begin at 8:30 a.m.
After the ranch house tour, come and see what the AMIA store has to offer – note cards, t-shirts, hats and more.
Anderson Marsh State Historic Park is located on Highway 53, between Lower Lake and Clearlake.
