Five Year Commemoration of The Cedars Acquisition in Sonoma County
The Cedars supports some of the most unique and extremely unusual botanical, geological and aquatic resources on the planet. Peridotite mantle rock that normally rests 3 to 70 miles below the earth’s surface and serpentine soils make this ultra-basic environment home to at least eight endemic plant species. In 2011, the Conservancy partnered with the Sonoma Land Trust, Save the Redwoods League, and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to purchase the 540 acre property and transfer it the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for permanent protection within its adjacent Area of Critical Ecological Concern.
