NeWTs stands for Neighbors Working Together — and we believe that with the right people serving as neighborhood leaders, we will be able to to inspire large-scale actions that are water-wise, fire-smart, and wildlife-friendly.
This special workshop invites Sonoma Valley residents to spend the day at Morton’s Warm Springs in Glen Ellen, along our beautiful Sonoma Creek, learning and connecting with others to create a more resilient community. Hear from local experts about the issues, learn about watershed health, fire ecology, water wise gardening, creating pollinator habitat, and emergency preparedness — and be inspired by the solutions!
This workshop will equip you to become a leader in your community. By the end of this workshop, participants have the opportunity to sign on as Sonoma Ecology Center NeWTs Leaders — including three individual consultations with SEC staff to support you in taking on actions, and an invitation to our follow-up showcase and celebration in August. You will receive a reusable shopping bag full of resources, as well as admission for the day at Morton’s! Though long, the workshop includes a nice long lunch break with time for an afternoon swim.
Participation in this workshop is FREE! However, donations are graciously accepted. Event includes workshop plus admission to Morton’s geothermal pools ($42 value). Consider contributing to Sonoma Ecology Center, and to Morton’s Warm Springs’ “Restore the Springs Initiative”
