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.

¡LandPaths y Sonoma Water los invita a una aventura de observación de aves por el Río Ruso! Las aves, los humanos y otros animales salvajes comparten la misma agua dentro de la cuenca del Río Ruso. Los invitamos a buscar y observar aves locales y migratorias que dependen de la cuenca del Río Ruso para su ciclo reproductivo. La mayoría de las aves que anidan lo largo del Río Ruso, como el Picogordo Tigrillo y el Chipe Amarillo, vuelan desde México, América Central y Sudamérica y se pueden observar localmente durante esta temporada. También hablaremos del sistema de suministro de agua potable y visitaremos el increíble Collector de Agua número 6, el cual solo se puede visitar con paseos guiados como este. Este paseo divertido y educativo es para individuos o familias con niños de cuarto año de primaria o mayores
