Community Hubs, Protected Land

Places

Community access to local open spaces lies at the heart of LandPaths . With that comes a responsibility to take care of the land, especially in light of the rising challenges of life in the 21st century due to climate change.

LandPaths’s dedicated volunteers and staff steward multiple preserves and community gardens across Sonoma County. We call them people-powered parks for a reason!

Love the Land

All of LandPaths’ preserves are permanently protected from further development. With the help of people like you, we care for the land in a low-carbon way that’s good for nature and the community. We also partner with city and county agencies to steward community gardens and open space preserves. 

Public Access

We invite you to join us at each preserve, aside from Ocean Song, which is currently closed to public access. These are community hubs where you can come together in common purpose, with people like you, in the spirit of belonging, welcoming, love of the land, and stewardship. 

By gathering people on our land, we hope to create deeper connections, and a community conservation ethic, now more important than ever as we grapple with the impact of climate change on future generations. 

Throughout the year, we offer hundreds of opportunities to get outside and grow community with nature in these awe-inspiring local landscapes.
