Celebrate Earth Day: Get back to nature in Sonoma County, California

April 6, 2019 Visit California No Comments Email Email

Discover the amazing bounty offered by the land and sea as Sonoma County celebrates Earth Day with events, festivals, volunteer opportunities, or by simply getting outdoors and breathing fresh air.

There’s so much to do and see here that Earth Day — Monday, April 22 — is more like Earth Month. Start a week early with a events at Quarryhill Botanical Gardens, Alexander Valley Vineyards, Windsor Earth Day and Wellness Festival, or a tour at Safari West. Near the actual day, it may be fitting to volunteer for a beach cleanup or take in an art exhibit that showcases climate change. Celebrate the weekend after and experience Earth Day on stage, an annual family friendly festival in Santa Rosa. Details on these events are below.

Earth Day is a time to connect with the land and with each other in Sonoma County’s great outdoors – all 1,576 square miles of it. More than 60 regional and state parks make Sonoma County one of California’s most diverse natural destinations. Hike among towering redwoods; watch for whales, otters, or sea lions along rugged Pacific coastline; paddle through the inviting cool waters of one of three rivers, and get to know inviting small towns.
