Bohemia Ecological Preserve is a 1,000-acre, LandPaths-owned community gem located near Occidental. This remote property offers visitors awe-inspiring views from vast coastal prairie meadows interspersed with stands of old-growth fir, hardwood riparian forest, chaparral and oak woodlands. The waterfall on Duvoul Creek, a beloved local treasure, drains into salmon-bearing Dutch Bill Creek, one of the most valuable streams for coho in the Russian River system.
LandPaths envisions Bohemia as an integrated preserve of wild and managed lands that maximizes ecological health and enriches the community’s experience of nature, strengthening their understanding and desire to act for the land and community. Bohemia currently hosts over 25 guided hikes on the property each year, and monthly drop-in stewardship days. Through the Bohemia Docent Program, a cadre of trained volunteers take on a leadership role in caring for and guiding others on the land. Bohemia bosts a series of tent cabins, making it an ideal location for group retreats and workshops.
