Ocean Song-Myers is the 800-acre protected preserve in west Sonoma County stewarded by LandPaths. The land is the ancestral territory of the Southern Pomo people and the Coast Miwok people since time memorial. The land is vibrant with native coastal grasslands, canyons, ponds and streams, mixed oak woodlands, redwoods, and a habitat garden that benefits pollinators, birds, and humans alike.
Volunteer stewardship day activities vary with the season but can include invasive species removal, habitat restoration, general preserve clean-up, trail work, forestry and wildfire fuel reduction, or habitat garden maintenance.
Where to Meet: We'll meet at 10am at the large, red-roof barn next to the dirt parking lot.
Directions: From the town of Occidental, head west on Coleman Valley Rd for 1.8 Miles. At the stop sign, turn right to remain on Coleman Valley Rd and continue an additional 3.4 miles to the main entrance to the preserve (19100 Coleman Valley Road), which will be on your left. Look for the LandPaths' sign in the driveway. Staff or volunteers will direct you towards the barn and parking area.
