How You Can Help

As our landholdings increase, so do our stewardship responsibilities. Volunteers are always needed to help out on a wide variety of workdays from spring through fall. Along with activities like eradicating thistle or planting oak trees, stewardship volunteers get to hike, picnic and explore very special properties not often open to the public. A volunteer can also become a conservation monitor and get to know a specific property really well, or become a member of the Go-To Gang and tackle special construction and fix-it projects. Administrative volunteers are welcome as well, so if you have a special skill you’d like to offer, please contact us.

Protect your land

Sonoma County is an unusually large and diverse county with only 15 percent of the land permanently protected thus far, compared to 59 percent of Marin County and 38 percent of San Mateo County. By 2040, Sonoma County’s population is expected to rise by more than 50 percent to 700,000 residents and the impacts of climate change on humans and other species are still unknown. A prudent course of action is to protect land, letting open spaces perform their ecological services and provide plant and animal species with a buffer to adapt to the changing environment.
