Lend a Hand and Learn Your Herbs!

Join LandPaths and the Sonoma County Ag Preservation & Open Space District for a day tending the land!  We’ll remove invasive species, improve the trails, & learn about the edible and medicinal plants on the property as we go. We’ll be walking over moderate terrain (mostly flat but with very uneven footing) removing invasive species as we go and stopping to discuss the medicinal plants we see throughout the property.  Plant info will be adult-focused but families are more than welcome. Total distance will be 2 miles at most.  Click here for more info and to register.
