About Laufenburg Ranch
The 176-acre turn-of-the-century farm in Knights Valley was bequeathed to Sonoma Land Trust in 1987 by the late Charles Laufenburg. The Ranch features an historic barn, oak woodlands, and expansive views of Mt. St. Helena. Bidwell Creek, which runs through Laufenburg Ranch, is habitat for salmonids and endangered freshwater shrimp. Sonoma Land Trust partnered with Circuit Rider Productions’ Watershed Science program for several years to expand the riparian corridor along Bidwell Creek and provide environmental education opportunities for local youth.
