Wild About Wildflowers

Wildflowers are one of the telling signs that spring has arrived — and, in California, we’re lucky to be home to such a wide variety of native flowers, including many rare and endemic species. In fact, Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties are home to 358 species of wildflowers alone!

This a short, handy guide to just some of Sonoma Land Trust’s favorite, beautiful and unusual flowers of Sonoma County, many of which can be found on our protected preserves. #NoticeNature Includes:

  • Gorgeous pictorial of some of our favorite native flowers
  • Habitats where each can be found

Conservation Cocktails: Recipes for Saving the Land

What does protecting nature in Sonoma County have in common with cocktails? Like the land and waterways of Sonoma County, cocktails are remarkably diverse and incredibly adaptive. They can be cool or hot, dry or fresh, and even evoke different places and seasons from their flavors, like a mojito in the tropics or a hot toddy in the cold of winter.

We hope you enjoy this carefully crafted cocktail book inspired by the regions and places we work hard to protect and restore — and we expect that, as you read through this book and sip on your drink, you’ll feel the connection to the land, too.
