AUCTION AWEIGH!

OUR ANNUAL BBQ AND AUCTION GOES ONLINE!
Like many non-profits this year, we have pivoted away from our lovely live auction and barbecue to an online auction utilizing Bidding For Good.  Our auction begins on October 3rd, ending on October 24, 2020.


Great Auction Lots are already rolling in like the tide that floats our auction boat, thanks to the generosity of our many supporters and sponsors.  Lots like our Disneyland Package, a 3-night Get-A-Way to Mendocino, and more will be back again plus new Lots that could be perfect for YOU.  Check out our Auction Website for early information on Lots for your auction pleasure!  CLICK HERE for more information.

SUMMER UPDATES!


MELDING ART AND CONSERVATION IN DOWNTOWN SANTA ROSA
Getting outside into nature is healthy and fun, and we are continuing to develop innovative ways to stay safe but be outside.  We are part of the Open & Out artwork which will be displayed along Fourth Street in Santa Rosa.  In addition to being art, this project is a guided tour of beautiful vignettes of native Sonoma County wildlife when viewed independently, and taken collectively are a self-guided treasure hunt for people who like to seek nature, beauty, and knowledge!  LEARN MORE

OUTREACH FOR POLLUTION PREVENTION AND CONSERVATION STARTS IN COLGAN CREEK
Conservation Works has just been awarded a grant to conduct outreach on (1) increasing fire and/or flood resiliency, (2) improving pollinator habitat, and (3) lessening erosion near Colgan Creek, an urban and rural stream that is within the Russian River watershed. This project is youth oriented, and will be led by a youth Conservationist Intern to facilitate implementing innovative oureach techniques identified in Conservation Works' recently completed Outreach Plan.  LEARN MORE

THE LIVING ROOM PROJECT COMPLETES ITS FIRST PHASE
The Living Room is the only day center in Sonoma County that specifically serves homeless and at-risk women and their children by providing participants with a place to be during the day when overnight shelters are closed. The Living Room, located in Santa Rosa, provides a supportive place to heal while in transition. Conservation Works' project has completed the first phase toward creating a serene garden habitat area at the Living Room that will integrate our pollinator protection, water conservation, and vermicomposting programs. The project entails working with the Living Room’s homeless and at-risk women and their children in developing a healing and learning garden, which can be utilized for ongoing education and outreach. The first phase of the project installed pollinator habitat and rainwater collection and storage, along with addition of edible plant-scapes such as fruit trees. LEARN MORE

BEE PATCHES ARE SPREADING THROUGH MENDOCINO & LAKE COUNTIES

Our signature youth environmental education and ACTION project is "Bee Patches."  This year we are expanding "Bee Patches" into both Mendocino and Lake Counties, while continuing to nurture our Sonoma County sites.  Thanks to grants from several private foundations, "Bee Patches" will be working with youth and other community members planting and/or restoring pollinator habitat in burned areas on and near tribal rancherias in Lake County.  In addition, "Bee Patches" are spreading into coastal Mendocino County, a fitting location as the City of Fort Bragg became a Bee City last year.
