Experience Nature, Get Outside

Explore

Recent studies show that just two hours a week in nature has immense benefits for your physical and mental well-being. We believe that all people should have access to the awe inspired by nature.  And the inspiration to heal the land that comes from time well-spent on the land. We make it easy for you to experience Sonoma County’s open spaces, farms, and urban gardens.

A sunset hike on an accessible trail through a beautiful preserve. A Spanish language kayak paddle down the river. A weekend hiking trek to the sea. A birding outing on mild terrain. A friendly potluck under the Redwoods. It’s all there waiting for you.

Step outside and experience the beauty of this place we call home.
