Explore Paulin Creek Preserve!

An Urban Oasis Family Exploration at the Startlingly Lovely Paulin Creek Preserve, April 4th, 10am-12:30pm

Join a community of young families for an outdoor, urban adventure at the surprisingly gorgeous Paulin Creek Preserve, 46 acres that have been protected by a partnership between the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, The Sonoma County Water Agency and Sonoma County. We will spend the morning exploring the open meadows and forest trails of the Paulin Creek Preserve.  We will make a few stops along the way for guided explorations, simple nature games, and of course, and perhaps most importantly - free play.  We will walk about a mile total on this adventurous urban exploration, investigating this bird-filled backyard preserve, while keeping our eyes out for deer and other critters that also enjoy this lovely open space in the heart of Santa Rosa.  Click here for more info & to register.
