Families

We make it easy and fun for all families to experience nature in Sonoma County’s remarkable parks and open spaces. Immersion with community, in nature, builds a sense of belonging, a lifelong connection to the outdoors, and a passion for land stewardship. From iRead Outside to our many free, family-oriented outings, we ensure that everyone has the opportunity to get outside, connect with the natural world and each other, and thrive.
