Sonoma Ecology Center
Many Sonoma wineries boast of being organic, biodynamic, or sustainable, and of the unique characteristics of the environment in their tiny pockets of Sonoma. To get deeper into the character and issues of Sonoma’s landscape, check out the Sonoma Ecology Center (20 East Spain St., Sonoma, 707/996-0712, www.sonomaecologycenter.org).
Much more than just a visitors center, this organization works throughout Sonoma county to study, manage, repair, and restore as much of the land as possible to a pristine, healthy state. Their office includes displays and materials about their work and the landscape of Sonoma.
