Press Democrat: Sonoma County’s LandPaths ignites teens' passion for nature

"...they formed a circle with their adult leaders to reflect silently on the previous three days, on the beauty of the land, the wildlife they had seen, the expectations they had when they started out and the experience of pushing forward through fatigue, self-doubt, homesickness and, one of them, severe nausea, only to arrive at camp and have the heavens open up."  Click here to read the full article.

TrekSonoma - Bohemia to the Sea

 2016IFtrekedited -v2

This has become the signature TrekSonoma 3-day experience to date – travelled by public participants, commissioned groups and now – the past two years – by teens on spring break. Starting at LandPaths’ Bohemia Preserve off Bohemian Highway on Friday, we walk nearly 20 miles over the course of three days, finishing at Shell Beach on the Sonoma Coast just south of Goat Rock State Park.  First night, Bohemia Ecological Preserve with tenting at “Hut Hill,” with its big views and nearly zero (!) light sources to be seen from distant ridges after sundown.  Second night, a secluded privately owned ranch on the edge of Willow Creek State Park.  Click here for more details and to register.

Drawing Nature: Colored Pencil Techniques

June 24th, 2017

Antze Poppy

Spend a peaceful day at the Laguna Environmental Center, in partnership with the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, LandPaths and Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation & Open Space District, trying out different colored pencil techniques. Working with a variety of native plants, leaves and flowers growing at the Laguna, we will focus on layering, blending, burnishing, and under-painting. We will play with some color theory and how to apply it to the pencils. This is a perfect class for beginners to learn about colored pencils and drawing nature and for more experienced artists to hone their skills. All drawing levels are welcome. Suitable for 12-year-olds and up (children under 15 must be accompanied by a parent)  Click here to learn more.
