Creek Explorers Field Days

Join Putah Creek Council for a family Field Day at Lake Solano Park

Putah Creek Council is offering 20 free, family field days on Saturdays at Lake Solano Park from September 2022 to June 2023. Build a water filter, listen for different bird songs, become part of a life-sized watershed, meet the water critters that call Putah Creek home, and more! Field days will consist of an hour of free-form activities including scavenger hunts, self-guided walks, crafts, building activities, and demonstrations, and a two-hour stewardship project that could include helping to plant, weed, or pick up trash to help keep our natural spaces healthy and beautiful. 

Explore ten different topics, each offered twice over the 20 days, that will help you discover the importance of protecting our water. Attend one, or attend all ten! Collect a badge of the day for each topic. If you attend more than one Field Day, you’ll receive an official Creek Explorers Badge. All participants will receive a free nature journal and other fun giveaways.
