Ten years ago, thanks to the support of our members, Sonoma Land Trust purchased the Sears Point property. In late October, we began breaching the levee holding back the water from the bay and, since then, have removed an entire mile of levee! Now, the tidal basin is full of water and myriad bird species have found it. Join us to witness the tides as they flow through the 1,000 acres that had been sealed off from the bay for more than 100 years.
Explore the project on foot along the future 2.5-mile addition to the San Francisco Bay Trail. Bring your binoculars for a close-up look at the birds and speak with interpreters to learn more about this remarkable project. Native seeds will be distributed so you, too, can help seed the new tidal marsh.

Email us at outings@sonomalandtrust.org or call 707.526.6930 ext. 110 for more information.

For more than 35 years, the Sonoma Land Trust has been a vehicle for people with passion, persistence and a love of the land to come together to protect forever one of the most beautiful counties in America.
