Can you tell your hound's tongue from your baby blue eyes?
We have a new digital field guide to help identify some of Sonoma County's more common wildflowers. Entries are organized by color, and each links to iNaturalist for more details about local sightings and habitat. Download it to your phone and have it handy on all your spring walks!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the dedication of Tolay Lake Regional Park on March 30. It was a day of hikes, picnics, and community connections under brilliant blue skies. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you enjoy your new park.
We're excited to be a host of the City Nature Challenge on April 28. At this BioBlitz, we invite you to nurture your inner scientist and work alongside local experts to document the flowers, insects, lichen and other organisms at Sonoma Valley Regional Park. All you need are your smartphone and your curiosity.
Our partners at the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation are offering a special opportunity to learn about and support Tolay Lake. Members of the Foundation and the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, including American Indian studies professor Peter Nelson, will lead a May 5 cultural history hike followed by a catered lunch, with proceeds benefiting the park.
