Marsh Trail Summer Plant Guide
Spring Wildflower Plant Guide
In conjunction with the plant guides, we connect to The University of California, Berkeley Digital Library Project 's CalPhoto. There is a link to CalPhoto at the top of each plant guide and links on individual images to applicable CalPhoto image resources. The CalPhoto image archives contain over 20,000 images, covering the majority of species at Rush Ranch.
The plant guides can be used in conjunction with Pacific States Wildflowers, Peterson Field guides, published by Houghton Mifflin Company. Peterson page numbers are listed under PSW in the column to the left of the plant image in the plant guide.
Additional information on individual specimens can be located on the Internet using search engines such as Google under both scientific and common names.
The ranch has three marked circular trails, all of which are approximately two miles long. These are the Marsh Trail, South Pasture Trail and Suisun Hill trail. Dogs are only allowed on the Suisun Hill trail. No bicycles nor horseback riding are allowed. The Ranch is an excellent place to go for birding and to see wildflowers in the spring. There are a number of picnic tables behind the barn. All visitors should park in the designated area north of the barn. There are no entrance or parking fees. To get to Rush Ranch take Grizzly Island Road south from Suisun City and Highway 12 about two miles to the Ranch entrance.
