Become a Nathanson Steward!
Please join us once a month to help spruce up the Nathanson Creek Preserve Garden. This enjoyable community volunteer effort occurs every fourth Saturday of the month beginning Saturday, March 24, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Through these efforts, Sonoma Ecology Center and Nathanson Stewards will care for the lovely Nathanson Creek Preserve Native Plant Garden.
These events will be 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:
- Light weeding
- Trash pick-up
- Getting to know your neighbors
- Learning about native plants and local weeds
- Sharing a sack lunch
- Connecting with nature at your local park
