Taylor Mt. Regional Park trail work in September 2014 Wed Sep 3rd & Sat Sep 27

The Sonoma County Trails Council is working with Sonoma County Regional Parks to help build new trails at Taylor Mountain Regional Park and Open Space Preserve.

We will have two work days in September.

We’ll work from 9am to 1pm on

Wednesday, September 3


Saturday, September 27 – National Public Lands Day
which will be extra special with a drawing for a new Trek mt. bike at
the end of our work day.

You can become eligible to win it by sponsoring Trails for Taylor –

Wear sturdy shoes or boots, a long sleeve shirt and pants and sunscreen.
Bring a hat, gloves and water. We will have Clif bars, tools and
beverages afterwards.

Meet us at 9am at what will soon be the new Taylor Mountain Petaluma Hill Road trailhead and parking area, south of Yolanda Avenue (just past the Wheeler-Zamaroni Quarry).

Be careful turning into the parking area, there is a small unmarked
driveway and ranch gate that will be marked with two orange cones.

In order to make sure we have enough tools and beverages please reply to kenwells@sonic.net if you plan to attend.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

2014 Report on the Economic Impact of Equestrian Activities in Sonoma County

Sonoma State’s 2014 Report on the Economic Impact of Equestrian Activities in Sonoma County was presented to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, August 12th and was enthusiastically received by the Supervisors.

The headline is: There are an estimated 26,217 horses (and other equines) in Sonoma County which generate direct and indirect spending of $613 million annually and support 7,700 jobs and provide over $11 million in local tax revenues to Sonoma County every year.  We are fortunate to have a Board of Supervisors that embraces and appreciates the importance of the horse industry to the economy and culture of Sonoma County.  Our challenge now is to capitalize on this enthusiasm and take the steps that we need to preserve, protect and grow the horse industry in this wonderful county of ours.
