The Lake County Land Trust offers guided Saturday morning hikes around the nearby Rodman Slough Preserve every Saturday starting at 8:00 am in the summer months and 9:00 am in the winter. The hikes start at the Rodman Slough Preserve Nature Center at Nice-Lucerne cutoff exit from Rte 29 on the road to Lakeport.
Exploring the slough by kayak can be done at anytime. Kayak launching is available at the County's Rodman Slough Park on Nice-Lucerne cutoff road, by Rodman Slough Bridge. Kayaking is a great way to see the wide variety of wildlife in the slough, including egrets, herons, muskrats, otters, geese and even Bald Eagles. See the Kayaking page on this tab for details and further suggestions.
