Spring Break Nature Camp is a nature-based day camp open to young people aged 6 to12. Modeled after our award-winning In Our Own Backyard (IOOBY), spring break campers will learn and play while exploring the rich environment of Rancho Mark West.  A 120-acre preserve with a pristine creek, pond, big red barn, redwood forest, and miles of trails, in northeast Santa Rosa off St. Helena Road, Rancho Mark West is about 25 minutes from downtown Santa Rosa.


Our newest camp offering, Spring Break Nature Camp is a place for children to explore the natural world through the lens of the four themes: Discovery and Exploration, Watersheds, Habitat, and Stewardship. Grounded in youth-centered discovery, campers will learn about the natural environment while having fun with age-appropriate activities, nature adventures and games. Campers will hike the trails and discover life under logs, in the creek, and at the pond. They’ll also practice canoeing skills on the lake (weather-permitting) and participate in a stewardship project.


At the heart of our camp is the opportunity for every camper to build memorable connections with the land, a foundation for a healthy community that deeply values caring for each other and the land. Register today!

Shell Beach to Willow Creek Ranch


Family -trek -2016 (25)


Families of all ages are invited to join LandPaths on a two- day trek beginning and ending at Shell Beach, near Jenner. From the coast we will walk five miles inland to a secluded privately owned ranch on the edge of Willow Creek State Park for an overnight of camping, storytelling, good food and a starry night around a fire. Families will be able to wander, play, and relax along the beautiful salmon-bearing Willow Creek. After a leisurely Sunday morning families will hike back to the coast over our beautiful coastal hills and through spring flowers.
