The Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District permanently protects the diverse agricultural, natural resource, and scenic open space lands of Sonoma County for future generations.

We conserve…

  • Agricultural Lands: Lands that support diverse, sustainable, and productive agriculture.
  • Community Identity: Open lands that surround and differentiate the county’s urban areas and contribute to the unique scenic character of the county.
  • Healthy Communities: Open space and publicly accessible lands in and near cities and communities and connect people with protected lands.
  • Water: Natural lands and aquatic habitats that support sustainable aquatic ecosystems and water resources.
  • Wildlands: Natural lands and terrestrial habitats that support plants, wildlife, and biodiversity.
