Agricultural Heritage Outings

         In partnership with the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District (SCAPOSD), and a cadre of local experts, the RCD invites the public onto diverse properties that have been preserved in perpetuity by a District easement.  Our outings focus on the Agricultural Heritage of Sonoma County and explore the relationship between land and people.  Join us to learn about modern challenges, and discover the cutting edge innovations of local farmers and ranchers.
