Grab your binoculars and join LandPaths and the Petaluma Wetlands Alliance in partnership with the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District for an all-access outing at Shollenberger and the Petaluma Marsh, geared towards all folks on foot and in wheels (balance bikes, strollers, walkers and wheelchairs). This outing is geared towards folks interested in taking a leisurely pace with many stops to enjoy the wildlife as we roll/walk around the wetlands. Docents from the Petaluma Wetlands Alliance (PWA) will guide us in finding and identifying the various birds that congregate to this “birding hotspot.” Binoculars will be available to borrow. We’ll tell the stories of the Petaluma Marsh throughout the past decades, as we see firsthand the importance of this biologically diverse ecosystem. This is a family friendly and ADA accessible outing.

More about the Petaluma Wetlands Alliance:  

In addition to preserving habitats, with particular emphasis on birds and overall biodiversity, the Petaluma Wetlands Alliance also works with the schools, governments, environmental organizations, and our community. We educate the public about the ecology, wildlife, and the value of wetlands. The PWA is dedicated to the stewardship, restoration, and expansion of publicly accessible wetlands and associated wildlife habitats. We are active in Shollenberger Park, Alman Marsh, and the Ellis Creek Wetlands.
