Explore the Calabazas Creek Open Space Preserve – Valley of the Moon’s Hidden Gem! @ Calabazas Creek Open Space Preserve
Mar 9 @ 10:00 am – 1:30 pm

Join us for an exclusive guided exploration of the Calabazas Creek Open Space Preserve, situated near the core of the 2017 Nunns Fire. This 1,290-acre preserve, protected by Ag + Open Space in 2004, offers stunning vistas, open meadows, waterfalls, and oak woodlands, showcasing a diverse range of microclimates

This moderately strenuous hike includes a substantial elevation gain on established trails. Participants are advised to bring water, snacks, and be prepared for the day’s weather. Note that there is a shallow water crossing, with depth dependent on recent rainfall. The hike will proceed in light rain, but heavy rain will result in cancellation.

The outing is made possible through the Ag + Open Space District with the support of Sonoma County voters through a quarter-cent sales tax, ensuring no cost is associated with this event.

Following a parkland transfer, Regional Parks owns and manages the land, while Ag + Open Space maintains an interest through a conservation easement. The collaboration between the two agencies ensures the ongoing health and resilience of the preserve.

Registration Information:
Reservations are required online through Sonoma Ecology Center. Upon registration, participants will receive directions and day-of contact information. For further inquiries, please get in touch with Tony Passantino at Tony@sonomaecologycenter.org.

Spring Equinox Visioning: Identity Mapping and Charting Your Future @ Sonoma Garden Park
Mar 16 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join us in celebrating the upcoming Spring Equinox at our Visioning event: Identity Mapping and Charting Your Future on March 16, 10:00 am-1:00 pm. 

Let’s gain inspiration from Earth’s seasonal transformation. Participants will go from wandering to getting in touch with deep identity traits and inner tools. We will begin with a garden walk and guided meditation in the outdoor yoga studio, using somatic connections as a tool to get in touch with ourselves. After, we will stroll the springtime awakening lavender labyrinth. Then, after journaling in the oak woodlands, we will spread out at picnic tables and engage in developing a unique and functional work of self-expressive art. Using paper, printed images, watercolor wash, writing and sketches, you will get a chance to work on envisioning future milestones. At the end of the event, you will have a finished identity map, or have gained inspiration and direction for how to bring your dreams into reality.

This event is for ages 16 and above.

If possible, please bring pictures or clipped images that inspire you or magazines for cutting from. Light refreshments will be provided. Please bring a mug or water bottle and wear shoes for uneven terrain.
