Sugarloaf Volunteer Training @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Mar 7 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

We have volunteer opportunities for you! Initial training is provided and periodic docent enrichment events feature speakers who provide more insight into specific aspects of park history or ecology.

We need volunteers to:
– Become docents at the Visitor Center
– Direct visitors at the entrance kiosk
– Assist with data entry
– Aid project research and grant-writing
– Work on trail and park maintenance projects
– Facilitate special events and parking
– More volunteer opportunities and specifics
– Spanish-English fluency a plus

Experience is not necessary but welcomed, as well as a willingness to learn and the desire to share that knowledge with our visitors. We ask for a minimum of 4 hours per month of volunteer service. Join us! Together we can help make the parks thrive and provide great experiences for park visitors.

Sun, May 3, 9:00-12:00pm

The 162-acre property in the foothills of Sonoma Mountain is protected by a conservation easement made possible by your Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District (Ag + Open Space) and the California Wildlife Conservation Board. The property is managed under a partnership with the landowner and Sonoma Ecology Center, to protect the Preserve’s unique plants, thriving streams, and wildlife habitat.

This outing is a beginning-level walk over gently sloped land. Most of the walk is through grassland, generally not on trails, so the footing can be uneven. The walk crosses a few small creek channels, which sometimes have shallow water with stepping stones.  There is no charge for this outing, which is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the work of Ag +Open Space with a quarter-cent sales tax.

Please note that these popular walks fill to capacity on a first-come, first-served basis every year, so early registration is encouraged! Walks will go on in light rain, but heavy rains will cancel the walk.

Directions and day-of-contact information will be emailed upon registration.

For additional information or questions about the outing, please contact Tony Passantino at (707) 996-0712 ext. 124, or Tony@sonomaecologycenter.org
