On Wednesdays, Davis artist Betty Berteaux, would lead a group of artists to various places throughout Yolo and surrounding counties. This particular Wednesday, we went inside the Yolo Basin Wildlife Reserve located next to the Yolo Causeway, a stretch of a bridge highway that leads into Sacramento. From the causeway as I’m driving across, I can see stretched of land filled with wildlife and rice fields. I found out that it is a hunting ground for ducks during the fall.
Ann Brice, the caretaker of the Yolo Basin, took us to a beautiful spot, Green Lake. Quite peaceful and away from the noises of the Yolo Causeway.
