Sonoma Mountain Vernal Pools

Sunday, May 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join Sonoma Land Trust and Sonoma County Ag + Open Space for a walk on the newly acquired Sonoma Mountain Vernal Pools property.
This 174-acre preserve protects rare and threatened plant species and conserves a significant portion of a wildlife corridor. You will walk through the oak woodlands and meadows to see the vernal pools and enjoy the beauty of this ecological preserve. The Sonoma Mountain Vernal Pools property was acquired by Sonoma Land Trust in March of 2023. As a partner in the project, Sonoma County Ag + Open Space holds a conservation easement on the property. Additional funding partners include the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the State Coastal Conservancy, and the California Natural Resources Agency. This land protection will ensure the ongoing health of the property’s natural features, including two rare vernal pools, mature oak woodlands, intact grasslands, and portions of Yulupa Creek.
