We are an organization built on grassroots activism and we work directly with the public. Our volunteers are passionate and dedicated people who realize the importance of preserving the Sonoma County environment for all generations. The reason we’ve been able to do so much good is because of people like you who love the place we all live, work, and play and hope to keep it beautiful for years to come. Here are a few of our upcoming projects, and if you join us today, you can play an integral role in Sonoma County’s future!

Carrying on for Bill Kortum
We’re now organizing to fulfill Bill’s last wish – to open up Lafferty Ranch on Sonoma Mountain to the public. It’s time for the Bill Kortum Regional Park at Sonoma Mountain, and you can help make this dream a reality.
We’ll work together to make sure that beach and marine protections, as well as public access, remain strong in the Sonoma County Local Coastal Plan (LCP).
We will need to stand up for the trees again in 2015. Conversion of Sonoma’s forests to vineyards, estate homes, and two-by-fours remain a constant theat. To start, we’ll work on a stronger Tree Ordinance for Sonoma County.
The greenbelts between Sonoma’s cities that you voted for nearly 20 years ago will expire in 2016. Join us in mobilizing our friends and neighbors in voting to renew these critical Community Separators.
Sonoma County has hundreds of miles of rural roads that provide access to the beautiful scenic backdrop of Sonoma County. We support keeping these roads rural with limited maintenance and full embrace of their significance to our deep rural and agricultural heritage. There will be a travelling showcase of Heritage Roads, via photos taken by the late John LeBaron, in cahoots with his partner in crime the late Bill Kortum. Stay tuned!
Climate Action Plans
Climate change presents unique challenges for our county, challenges we need to be prepared for. Every city in the county needs its own Climate Action Plan. We will do our part to make sure that Sonoma County is as prepared as possible for climate change.
These are only a few of the upcoming campaigns we’re championing in the coming years, and there are always opportunities and unseen challenges that arise. Please contact us today to learn more or ask how you can help. Join now and become a guardian of Sonoma County’s natural environment!
