Join Sonoma Ecology Center naturalists for a spring Wildflower Walk at the Van Hoosear Wildflower Preserve. |
Van Hoosear Wildflower Preserve is a 162-acre property at the base of Sonoma Mountain, renowned for having one of the most incredible spring wildflower displays in all of Sonoma County. It is protected as open space forever by a Conservation Easement, made possible by the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and California's Wildlife Conservation Board.
Sonoma Ecology Center manages the preserve, protecting and restoring the botanical, aquatic, and wildlife aspects of this unique natural treasure, while providing educational opportunities for the public.
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 are relatively defined trails, with some uneven footing at times.
There is no charge for this outing, which is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the Open Space District's work with a quarter cent sales tax. Space for this outing is limited and reservations are required by 5:00 pm the day prior to the walk. Directions will be emailed upon registration.
