{raditorial} consumnes river preserve | galt, ca

Sep 19, 2016 Galt, CA, USA

yesterday we set off to adventure a nature preserve that's 20 miles away from us, and found ourselves here. consumnes river preserve, located in galt, ca is a 46,000 acre nature preserve. the preserve is home to over 200 bird species, over 400 plants, as well as cranes, pintails, hawks, stilts and turkeys. we unfortunately didn't get to see much of the animals besides turkeys during our treck, but we did enjoy the walk through the serene nature the walk provides.  

the preserve offers fairly easy nature trails, where sometimes you won't even spot another human being if you go during off-peak months. the pristine trail offers beautiful sights of the lush varieties of plants and occasional wildlife, that leads to a man made wooden walkway that ends with a deck, which is an amazing spot to watch the sunset for the perfect (insta)gram.

other than hiking, you can also go paddling in the river, go fishing, driving tours, nature watch and more. they also offer guided tours and school field trips. 
they do restorations to preserve the nature and wildlife, and they allow anyone who's interested to volunteer. to learn more, visit their website here.
