The Consumnes River Preserve is actually in north Galt… it only took us about 15-20 minutes to drive there from the downtown Sacramento area. We were looking for something to do outdoors with the kids on this Saturday. I Googled “‘nature walks” and this caught my attention. We packed a picnic and ate at the visitor center before we set out on the walk. The visitor center had helpful “rangers” (not sure what their official title is, but they were cool and jumped right in and showed the boys around and told about the different things to do). I love the note above the picture – Please Touch! This is the kind of exhibit I like.
All in all, a peaceful day and a nice, close get-away with the family. Oh and did I mention, it’s free!
Here are some other snap shots (below) I took while on the River Walk.
