UPPER LAKE, Calif. — The Lake County Land Trust’s Rodman Preserve at 6350 Westlake Drive near Upper Lake is continuing to welcome visitors on Saturdays but hours have changed to 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The previous 10 a.m. opening is not appropriate for summer because of the heat.

The preserve offers a moderate one and a half mile walk where visitors will see birdlife and even some mammals like foxes and coyotes.

A volunteer will open the gate at 9 a.m. and visitors are asked to sign in before embarking on a pleasant self-guided morning walk.

The nature center remains closed but visitors are welcome to enjoy the walk and the open air back porch.

Go to the Lake County Land Trust website at for more information and don’t mistake the Rodman Preserve for the Rodman Slough County Park which is down the road from the Preserve on the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff.
