Event Details

As part of an exciting new program, OAEC is offering a California Naturalist Certification Program in conjunction with the University of California.

This weeklong residential summer intensive will introduce you to the wonders of our unique ecology; engage you in the stewardship of California’s natural communities; and enhance your professional development in the fields of biology, botany and more.

Through the California Naturalist program and exploration of the Sonoma Coast, participants become active members in a growing movement of conservation, citizen science, and volunteer activism. The Sonoma County coastline offers a unique landscape where temperate rain forest meets Mediterranean chaparral.

Participants will explore the redwood forests, oak woodlands, and riparian habitats of California’s coastal mountains. Class lectures and field trips will also take students from these coastal ranges to the ocean, informing about coastal prairies, estuaries, and marine tidal zones.

This course combines science curriculum, journaling, guest lecturers, daily field study and local cultural knowledge. We will use The California Naturalist Handbook as a curriculum guide. California Naturalist Volunteers complete 40 hours of combined classroom and field training and a recommended 40 hours of volunteer service.

Occidental Arts & Ecology Center

OAEC is a non-profit sustainability education center located in western Sonoma County. Much of the Center’s work is in response to the challenge of how to create ecologically, economically and culturally sustainable communities that are democratic and serve as a counterpoint to privatized and corporatized society.
