Visit the Suisun Wildlife Center

The Suisun Wildlife Center will host an open house 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday (Nov. 8).

The Center - perched on the edge of the Suisun Marsh at Peytonia Slough - is a care and release facility for animals native to the area, particularly specializing in infant animals abandoned by or separated from their parents. The staff and volunteers from this terrific nonprofit educational foundation also host a wide range of field trips and nature experiences for area school children.

Located at 1171 Kellogg Street in Suisun City, the Center has a number of resident animals on display. If the weather cooperates, the Center's resident golden eagle will make a special appearance at noon & 2 p.m.

After you stop by the Center, you can go right up Kellogg Street to a trio of terrific restaurants for your breakfast and lunch needs, including Bab's Delta Diner, Athenian Grill and Joy of Eating. Park and walk around the Waterfront District and the beautiful Promenade.

A trip to the Suisun Wildlife Center also makes for a great day trip destination, especially if you can couple it with a train ride on the Capitol Corridor to the Suisun City station or with a stop at the Jelly Belly factory just down Cordelia Road from the Suisun City Waterfront District.
