Who We Are

Who We Are

We are a robust network of forest landowners, land managers, foresters, land trusts, watershed councils, non-profits, government agencies, researchers and educators. We bring forestry and conservation expertise to provide education and resources to forest landowners with the goal of protecting and sustaining healthy forests, woodlands, and watersheds in Sonoma County.

Our Members

Any forest landowner can join the Forest Working Group. It is meant to be an open-access resource to all. There is no cost to join the network, and members are all volunteers (except for one paid coordinator). See our Membership page to join.
