Stewardship

LandPaths cares for the land on a number of preserves throughout Sonoma County. Drop-in and long-term stewardship activities include invasive species removal, road and trail maintenance, native planting, and light forestry work.

Owl Camp, Inspired Forward, and In Our Own Backyard (IOOBY)

Inspire, encourage, and motivate youth from across Sonoma County in outdoor experiences that tap into the opportunities for wonder, learning, and connection offered by nature!

Docent Program

Docents are instrumental to our mission of providing public access opportunities while creating vibrant people-powered preserves. After a training process, docents are ready to lead unique outings and hikes on preserves stewarded by LandPaths. Must be 18 years or older and certified in first aid and CPR. For more information about becoming a docent contact Laura Revilla at laura@landpaths.org.

Vamos Afuera

Nos pueden apoyar con una variedad de trabajos, includyendo, tomar fotos durante eventos, guiar a los participantes en las caminatas, y como cocineros en los campamentos.

Community Gardening 

Grow food, pull weeds, build compost, tend native plants and vineyards, and help support our thriving community garden programs at Bayer Farm and Jeff Bodwin Community Garden. We also need fruit tree specialists, harvest coordinators, and lunch program assistants for our free summer lunch program, in partnership with Redwood Empire Food Bank, held at both locations.

Wildlife Corridor Program 

Wildlife cameras on the preserves cared for by LandPaths document wildlife movement and patterns. Field responsibilities include changing SD cards and camera batteries and choosing camera locations. Or work on the database from a remote location, identifying animals in photos, and adding photo information to our master database.

Office Work

Participate in the office by supporting with data entry, office organization, and other tasks. Computer proficiency, especially with Microsoft Windows is often important. Days and times are flexible.

Communications

If you love to write, take photos, make short videos, or increase engagement and interaction on social media, we’d love to find a place for you!

Lesaya “Luna Moth” Howard, Owl Camp volunteer

" I would absolutely recommend others to volunteer at Owl Camp. Not only is it a great opportunity to get out in nature and spend time with kids, it's also very rewarding. Seeing the campers grow and come out of their shell throughout the week, along with the other amazing volunteers, keeps me coming back. "
