Event Details

Wildflowers and Ranching Near San Pablo Bay

Sonoma Resource Conservation District, the Sonoma County Agricultural and Open Space District, and Sonoma Land Trust are partnering to presenting a free hike for the public to learn how livestock grazing is helping us manage and protect the 1,665-acre protected Tolay Creek Ranch, including the spectacular spring wildflowers endemic to the serpentine soils found here. Tolay Creek Ranch is an amazing swath of grassland and creek habitats connecting the wetlands fringing San Pablo Bay to the foothills of Sonoma Mountain, and will soon be added to the adjacent Tolay Lake Regional Park.

 

Walk with Stewardship Director Bob Neale from the Sonoma Land Trust as he discusses how grazing management and watershed restoration work together to preserve our natural and agricultural heritage. Witness how these techniques are successful in benefiting plant life, wildlife and our diverse ecosystems. Enjoy a BYO picnic lunch atop a stunning vista overlooking the Baylands among vibrant wildflower blooms! It is a day not to be missed.

 

There is no cost for this event. The outing is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the Ag and Open Space District's work with a quarter-cent sales tax, and supporters of Sonoma Land Trust.

 

Part of the Agricultural Heritage Series brought to you by the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District & the Sonoma Resource Conservation District in partnership with the Sonoma Land Trust.
