Van Hoosear Wildflower Preserve

Van Hoosear Wildflower Preserve

 

Van Hoosear is a stunning 163-acre wildflower preserve in the foothills of Sonoma Mountain. The property — a gently sloping grassland with more than 250 species of common and rare wildflowers and native grasses — is permanently protected under a conservation easement made possible by the voter-approved Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District (Ag + Open Space) and the California Wildlife Conservation Board.

Sonoma Ecology Center manages Van Hoosear through a partnership with the landowner, and every spring our naturalists lead the public on guided tours through its spectacular wildflower displays.
