Experience the landscape of Sonoma County in a unique way on the weekend of this month’s Full Moon. Each Full Moon has a name that was used by the Algonquin tribes that lived in regions from New England to Lake Superior. These were later translated and adopted by early colonials and are still used today. With the Snow Moon of February as our guide we will be able to observe the landscape and search for evidence of the nocturnal animals that call this place home.

Join us as we celebrate World Wetlands Day by wandering through the trails of this hidden gem in Sebastopol. Learn about the natural landscape and the animals that call Sonoma County home. We will begin with a brief refresher on the natural history of the moon and its phases; and with that in mind, explore the oak grasslands and open space at the Uplands Preserve.

There is no charge for this event, which is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the work of Ag + Open Space with a quarter-cent sales tax.
