Take The SOS Challenge


It's really quite simple. Think of something you enjoy doing, invite your friends and neighbors, and turn your event into a fundraiser by collecting a suggested donation for the Sonoma Ecology Center. 

Have fun, raise consciousness about the importance of open space, and create community in the process. When your project is complete, give the money you raise to the Sonoma Ecology Center to support its work with Sonoma County and the state of California for permanent protection of wildlands on the Sonoma Developmental Center property currently open to all. Please make sure the SEC knows your donation was raised through Save Our Space. Send a summary and pics of your event to eldridgeforall@gmail.com, and we'll post your contribution on this website.

If you don't feel like hosting an event but still want to participate, please consider sponsoring an event, offering an SOS Special through your business and donating a portion of the proceeds, offering your services in exchange for a donation, or clicking on the button below to make a donation directly to the SEC.

Printable materials about the Sonoma Ecology Center are available. With advanced planning, speakers for your event can be arranged.
