About LandPaths

LandPaths was founded in 1996. Our mission is to foster a love of the land in Sonoma County. Our passion is to create exceptional outdoor experiences for people as a way to increase their understanding, appreciation and desire to steward nature. 

We believe our relationship with nature is fundamental to our future. 

Our work happens within the framework of three core initiatives:

  • Rooting Youth in Nature: Owl Camp, In Our Own Backyard, Inspired Forward, Russian River Teen Trek, Backcountry Basics, Camp Bohemia  
  • Branching Out Conservation for Everyone: Public outings to local open spaces, Vamos Afuera, Community Gardens, iRead Outside, Quests
  • Growing Community With Nature: Stewardship, Volunteers, Community Celebrations, Friends of the Grove, Bohemia Docents, TrekSonoma, Nature Preserves

We own protected open space preserves throughout Sonoma County. See Places to find out more about how you can get involved at our nature preserves and partner properties. Getting you engaged in a healthy way with the land is our priority.

Our preserves and partner properties are protected and made accessible to as many people as possible through LandPaths programs.
