Native grasslands are one of the most endangered ecosystems in California. Come explore the diverse and scenic grasslands at Pepperwood, located in the heart of the Mayacamas Mountain range in eastern Sonoma County. Learn about Pepperwood’s extensive land stewardship and research programs while observing how the landscape has recovered from two wildfires in 2017 and 2019. Pepperwood staff will highlight our conservation grazing program; prescribed burning, restoration and invasive species management activities; and discuss how our annual grassland monitoring program has helped us adapt to changing climate and drought conditions.
This event will include walking short distances off-trail on uneven and hilly terrain to reach demonstration sites.
