On the Land Public Outings
The winter rains have temporarily filled the newly-constructed 1,000-acre tidal marsh basin with water and it’s stunning! Celebrate the first day of spring by taking an easy stroll along the levee to get a glimpse of shorebirds and restored tidal marsh on one side, and waterfowl and future tidal marsh on the other. Sonoma Land Trust staff will be on hand for orientation and to answer questions, and birder expert Larry Broderick will assist with bird identification. Dogs on leash are welcome! Stop by anytime between 9am–2pm. Park on Reclamation Road (off Hwy 37 across from Lakeville Hwy intersection). Pre-registration encouraged but not required.
Join Sonoma Land Trust in celebration of our recent acquisition — Pole Mountain! This strenuous, 6-mile roundtrip hike begins at our Little Black Mountain Preserve and has a 1,000-foot elevation gain as we hike up the north side of the mountain along old ranch roads. We will enjoy the spring wildflowers on our way to a picnic lunch at the top of Pole Mountain, where we will bask in the panoramic views from the Sonoma Coast’s highest peak.
Join Baylands program manager Julian Meisler for a hike up the foothills of Cougar Mountain and learn about the diversity of spring wildflowers that cover these grasslands. Be prepared to walk at a leisurely pace and spend time on hands and knees examining these flowers along the way. We will enjoy vistas over San Pablo Bay, as well as a bird's eye view of the stunning 1,000-acre tidal marsh restoration project now underway.
Join Sonoma Land Trust staff for a 4.5 mile hike through the coastal prairie at the Jenner Headlands Preserve. Enjoy the sweeping coastal views as we traverse the hillside on our way to the Jean Schulz Wildflower Meadow, where we will picnic amidst the vast carpets of miniature serpentine wildflowers.
Explore beautiful Glen Oaks Ranch in Sonoma Valley and learn the traditional and indigenous uses of native plants. Herbalist Madelene McCann will lead a leisurely walk through the oak groves while we learn through stories about the plants we discover along the way.
