Mission Statement

The Sonoma Ecology Center's mission is to work with our community to enhance and sustain ecological health in the Sonoma Valley

Description

Through a variety of programs, the Sonoma Ecology Center (SEC) honors its mission of working with our community to enhance and sustain the ecological health of the Sonoma Valley. SEC's experts in the Research and Geographic Information Systems Programs (GIS) help us to better understand the relationships between the natural and human environments, providing valuable tools to sustain the health of the Sonoma Valley Watershed. Since 2002, SEC's K-12 Watershed Education Program has provided over 4,250 Sonoma Valley students with accessible and interactive science education. In 2007 and 2008 alone the program reached over 900 students. While meeting California Science Education Standards, the Education Program utilizes the expertise of SEC scientists, technical equipment, and the natural setting of the Sonoma Garden Park all of which provide the student with an experience that goes well beyond the walls of a classroom. The six acre Sonoma Garden Park plays host to demonstrations on sustainable garden techniques, native plant propagation, adult education programs, and community gardening projects. Since the Winter of 2007, the Sonoma Garden Park has also served as the first stop in the interactive, interdisciplinary learning station of the Children's Discovery Trail. Through extensive Research and Education Programs, the Sonoma Ecology Center is actively protecting the ecological health and beauty of the Sonoma Valley and ensuring the sustainability of our Watershed by inspiring a new generation of environmentally-minded leaders.
