Draft Plan Recommendations are Ready for Feedback!
Based on community input over the past 6 months, the County has developed a draft set of actions to reduce climate pollution and address climate impacts. Help us shape the future of our Sonoma County parks by providing feedback through the Consider.it platform below.
Provide Feedback at In-Person Pop-ups!
Sonoma Regional Parks will also be hosting two in-person pop-ups at County Parks to get feedback on Plan recommendations. You can attend the following events in person:
Saturday January 20th , Helen Putnam Park from 10am-12pm
Saturday January 20th , Schopland Field from 2-4pm
About the Project
Sonoma County Regional Parks has an extensive and well-utilized Parks system encompassing more than 50 parks and beaches from Petaluma to Gualala and Sonoma to Bodega Bay. Regional Parks also manages the county's largest ocean marina and largest extracurricular environmental education center.
Although these parks and preserves are exposed to climate risks such as wildfires and extreme heat, they also play a crucial role in protecting adjacent communities, and Sonoma County as a whole, against these risks – and promoting community wellbeing. To guide Sonoma County Regional Parks' planning for a future in the reality of a changing climate, The Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plan (CARP) will serve as a roadmap to build resilience with the park system while reducing greenhouse gas emissions from park operations. To guide this planning effort, the County has enlisted the services of Rincon Consultants and BluePoint Planning.
January-February 2024 will be the priority setting phase of the project.
