- Wander Among the Wildflowers
Spring flowers are beginning to bloom! Come along to see the colors and learn more about native plants on our weekly wildflower walks March 14 to April 15. We expect a vibrant display, thanks to winter rains, and in honor of our 50th anniversary, we'll try to identify 50 species on these outings.
- Go Whale Watching
Grab your binoculars and head to the Sonoma Coast for one of nature's remarkable shows. March and April are prime months for the annual northbound migration of Pacific gray whales. Parks and trails along the North Coast and Bodega Bay are where you're most likely to glimpse mothers and calves making the journey.
