GIVE THE GIFT OF AN OLD-FASHIONED SUMMER

Donate to the Owl Camp Transportation & Tuition Scholarship Fund 2015

Give the gift of an old-fashioned summer -- an entire week spent out of doors, canoeing, swimming, searching for insects, carving wood and building teepees -- by donating toLandPaths’ Owl Camp Fund 2015.

 

Our goal is to provide a minimum of 40 camp scholarships this year. Your donation of $350 provides one child with tuition and transportation to camp for a week. $100 provides van transportation for one child for one week of camp. $250 provides a tuition scholarship for one camper for one week.


Help us meet our Owl Camp goal of $15,000 by Wednesday, April 22 (Earth Day!). 

 

Donate to Owl Camp today.  (For our records, please "dedicate" your donation to Owl Camp)

FEATURED OUTINGS & VOLUNTEER STEWARDSHIP

Herbs and Stewardship at Carrington Ranch!

Lend a Hand and Learn Your Herbs!

Join LandPaths and the Sonoma County Ag Preservation & Open Space District for a day tending the land!  We’ll remove invasive species, improve the trails, & learn about the edible and medicinal plants on the property as we go. We’ll be walking over moderate terrain (mostly flat but with very uneven footing) removing invasive species as we go and stopping to discuss the medicinal plants we see throughout the property.  Plant info will be adult-focused but families are more than welcome. Total distance will be 2 miles at most.  Click here for more info and to register.

Explore Paulin Creek Preserve!

An Urban Oasis Family Exploration at the Startlingly Lovely Paulin Creek Preserve, April 4th, 10am-12:30pm

Join a community of young families for an outdoor, urban adventure at the surprisingly gorgeous Paulin Creek Preserve, 46 acres that have been protected by a partnership between the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, The Sonoma County Water Agency and Sonoma County. We will spend the morning exploring the open meadows and forest trails of the Paulin Creek Preserve.  We will make a few stops along the way for guided explorations, simple nature games, and of course, and perhaps most importantly - free play.  We will walk about a mile total on this adventurous urban exploration, investigating this bird-filled backyard preserve, while keeping our eyes out for deer and other critters that also enjoy this lovely open space in the heart of Santa Rosa.  Click here for more info & to register.
