Lake Solano Park Habitat Restoration and Public Access Project

In April 2024, Solano RCD and its partners - Solano County Parks, Putah Creek Council, Bureau of Reclamation and Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation - received a $1,143,500 grant from the State of California Coastal Conservancy to restore habitat and improve public access and education opportunities on 19 acres at Lake Solano Park.
Portions of the Park were severely burned by the LNU Fire in August 2020, which killed most of the trees and shrubs in the upland areas of the Park and left hiking trails exposed to the hot summer sun. 
As part of the project, we intend to plant 1,700 native trees, shrubs, and subshrubs; install a half-acre demonstration garden complete with a new ADA trail and plant identification signs; plant 20,000 milkweed plugs and forbs for the benefit of Monarch butterflies; seed 10 acres of native grasses and wildflowers; and install two new kiosks and 15 interpretive signs along trails in the Park.
Many of the plants proposed for the new demonstration garden are of cultural significance to the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation and tribal members are helping develop interpretive materials. 
Twenty-four community planting events are planned for this project. If you are interested in helping restore native plants and improving wildlife habitat at Lake Solano Park, please visit our volunteer page for upcoming events or contact Katherine Holmes at
