Dogbane Preserve


Please join Ag + Open Space and special guests for a day of cordage-making and stewardship at the Dogbane Preserve. With many years of community care, the dogbane plant has thrived on this special three-acre, culturally-significant property. For centuries, Native Americans have come from all over the state to harvest the plant for use in making cordage, nets, bags, and belts. Participants will enjoy a cordage-making demonstration before helping to steward the property through the removal of invasive plants. Tribal members and local experts will help participants deepen their understanding of the cultural and ecological importance of the Dogbane Preserve located between Santa Rosa and Windsor.

Snacks and shovels will be provided, but please bring your own gloves and loppers or clippers if you have them. We’ll have some extras on hand just in case. Please dress in layers and wear clothes that can get dirty. Sturdy shoes are recommended. This event will run in light rain, but heavy rain will cancel. If you’re unsure, please call (707) 888-7531 on the morning of the outing for more information.

This is a free event, but an RSVP is requested to help us plan. Please RSVP using the form below:
