Membership in Action

Your Land Trust membership advances critical conservation work throughout Sonoma County. To deepen your connection with the land and with each other, members are invited to participate in activities throughout the year:

EXPERIENCE. Members can explore protected lands on special outings. Member outings include ever-popular raptor walks with Larry Broderick as well as special adventures, like tours of local farms and nature photography workshops on less-tread properties. Outings for members run fall through spring and are announced via email and posted to our website when registration opens.

LEARN. Members can learn about our projects and how land conservation benefits our whole community. You’ll receive monthly eNewsletters, print newsletters and our annual report each year.

GATHER. Members can join other Land Trust supporters at community events. We’ve held picnics, open preserve days, talks by beloved authors and so much more. Our annual Heart of the Land picnic welcomes members and guests to celebrate the land together.

Join us today!

Monthly Giving Program

Spread your support for the Land Trust throughout the year. Join our monthly giving program.

Your gift each month helps the Land Trust plan for projects on our conservation horizon. And, with a membership that’s always current, you’ll skip renewal reminders and receive special recognition in our annual report.

Gifts of Membership

Want to share our work with others? Give the gift of Sonoma Land Trust membership.

When you give a Sonoma Land Trust membership to friends and family, you share with them the benefits of protecting and caring for Sonoma County’s beauty and biodiversity. Like all new members, they’ll receive a Sonoma Land Trust car decal and special postcards. And they’ll get the chance to join member outings and events in the year ahead!

2019 Program Changes

Member support is vital to accomplishing our mission. Last year alone, members helped permanently protect three new properties, open Pole Mountain Preserve to the public, collaborate with partners to reduce wildfire risk in Sonoma Valley and host Bay Camp — our weeklong nature program for underserved youth. We’ve refreshed our membership program so that our members — longtime and new — can more deeply engage in land conservation if they wish. 

In addition to the special outings you know and love (like the wildflower hikes coming this spring!), we’re adding visits to special properties that we’re currently working to protect. You’ll also see some outings that will be more accessible to people with mobility limitations. That way, more members can connect with the land they’re helping to protect. We’re creating more digital resources so you can connect with nature at your leisure, as well as continuing our print and email newsletters. And, members and guests can join us at the annual Heart of the Land gathering to build community and celebrate the land that connects us all. Stay tuned for other special events on the horizon, as well.

To join or renew your membership, make a donation at a level most meaningful to you. Your gift today — of any size — advances land conservation throughout Sonoma County. Thank you. We really couldn’t do this work without you by our side.
