THANK YOU for considering a donation to LandPaths, the nonprofit chosen by Sonoma Ag and Open Space, State Senator Mike McGuire and, the City of Healdsburg as the one and only partner to help transition a
protected-forever Fitch Mountain into a community resource for connecting with
nature by stepping in to own the property for its first three years AND help the community become stewards of their own back yard.
Donations from the community towards LandPaths, one of our cherished, local nonprofits since 1996, go towards stewarding this land, connecting school children and others not traditionally served by access to open space -- and doing that not only on Fitch Mountain, but properties throughout Sonoma County.
