Natural Landscape of Solano County

Natural Landscape of Solano County

The natural landscape of Solano County is varied and includes several different ecosystems. The county is home to the Suisun Marsh, which is the largest estuarine marsh in California. The marsh is a wetland area that is important for wildlife habitat and water quality. The county also has rolling hills, valleys, and open grasslands. Additionally, Solano County is located on the edge of the San Francisco Bay, which provides opportunities for bird watching, fishing, and other outdoor activities.

The Suisun Wildlife Center is a nature preserve and wildlife rehabilitation facility located in Fairfield. The center offers educational programs about the local ecosystem and houses a variety of animals, including birds of prey, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals. Visitors can take part in guided tours, watch animal feedings, and participate in hands-on activities.

In addition to the Suisin Marsh, the county offers a plethora of hiking trails, scenic viewpoints, walking and biking paths throughout its many towns.

Wine County

Suisun Valley wineries are one of the state’s best-kept secrets, with several of them producing award-winning wines. Wineries in Solano County have been operating since the late 1800s, but planting became more common over the last 20 years and accelerated during the 1990s. When big corporate producers in Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley required grapes for some of California’s most popular varietals – cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, and merlot – Suisun Valley growers were among their preferred suppliers.

Today, practically every type of wine-grape is cultivated in Suisun Valley. More significantly, Suisun Valley wineries have earned a spot for themselves in the market by producing and selling high-quality, award-winning wines.
