Mushroom Hike @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Enjoy some fungi fun with local expert, George Riner. Fungi are masters at opportunity. Even after a fire, the spores are in the air and find an environment where the local fungal species – i.e. competition – have been greatly reduced. These may show themselves in ways you may not imagine.

This hike is limited to 40 guests. Be prepared for 2 miles of walking over moderate terrain. Meet at the Visitor Center. $10 per person, parking fees apply.

Nathanson Stewards Volunteer Clean-up @ Nathanson Creek Preserve Native Garden
Dec 22 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

On the fourth Saturday of every month, the Nathanson Stewards meet at the corner of East MacArthur and Second Street East, put on their gloves, and have a fun and productive morning tending the native garden located there.

This event is guided by trained restoration technicians from Sonoma Ecology Center, with a focus on native gardening and landscaping. The subject matter will vary with the seasons, and our technicians will demonstrate proper techniques for caring for the different native plants located within the Nathanson garden. Volunteers are asked to bring sunscreen or a hat, bottled water, a sack lunch and work gloves, and to wear closed-toed shoes. All ages are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

We’ll meet at the Nathanson Creek Preserve Garden located on the corner of East MacArthur Street and Second Street East in Sonoma. Activities may include:

  • Weeding
  • Trash pick-up
  • Getting to know your neighbors
  • Learning about native plants
  • Sharing a sack lunch
  • Connecting with nature at your local park
