LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The inaugural “Rodman Explorers,” program offered in June by the Lake County Land Trust at its Rodman Preserve Nature Education Center at 6350 Westlake Road between Lakeport and Upper Lake, was a fun event for the youngsters who attended.
The Land Trust is continuing the youth nature education program on the third Saturday of each month, starting at 9 a.m.
The next program is slated for Saturday, July 16, and youth between the ages of 7 and 12 are invited to attend this free and fun morning.
The program lasts about two hours and is led by local naturalist and educator, Elaine Mansell.
If you would like your child to attend this program, please call Elaine Mansell at 707-263-1637 for information and to reserve a space.
This month Mansell will focus on the complete ecosystem of the Rodman Preserve. She will feature large mammals down to the smallest creatures living on the land and in the water.
The Rodman Preserve offers wildlife everything it needs to survive, Mansell points out. Microscopes will be used, as well as binoculars during a short field trip.
The Rodman Slough Preserve and Nature Education Center is located at 6350 Westlake Road. Take the Nice-Lucerne Cut-off off of Highway 29, between Lakeport and Upper Lake. Turn east onto the Nice-Lucerne Cut-off, then left on to Westlake road. The preserve entry is to the immediate right after turning on to Westlake.
