Initiatives

Rooting Youth in Nature

LandPaths significantly reduces the barriers and expands opportunities to get outside so that youth can experience wonder, joy, awe, belonging, and a sense of stewardship in nature.

Branching Out Conservation for Everyone

We expand the percentage of people in Sonoma County who benefit from healthy land, understand the value of nature, and cultivate a sense of reciprocity with the environment.

Community Care

Growing Community with Nature

Facing the challenges like catastrophic fire and drought dramatically increased by climate change, LandPaths more than ever believes in  forging care and connection between people and the land. From stewardship days for all ages to conservation workforce training, we address community care with curiosity, determination, and creativity.
