April 2014 - Darren Peterie and Tom Rusert, co-founders of Sonoma Birding based in Sonoma CA, received the 36th annual John Muir "Conservationists of the Year" Award. The award was presented at the 100th Anniversary celebration of both Muir's birthday & his enduring legacy. In the history of public wilderness preservation, Muir's achievements are unmatched. He was the founder of the Sierra Club in 1892 and "Father of our National Parks". The conservation awards were presented at the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez, California.

The map and tour was first created in 2008 by Tom Rusert of Sonoma Birding as a "outdoor classroom" for community education. The walking tour highlights the abundance of unique trees in this arboretum that represent a wide range of countries. Historic monuments are highlighted and a list of some of the amazing urban birds recorded in this habitat is included. Special thanks to Scott Summers, cartographer and designer and Carolina Kestel designer. The tour map is also available at Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau on the plaza.
Here are the results by area for Sonoma Valley. This year we have two birds never recorded in the eight year event: the Eastern Phoebe and the Red-naped Sapsucker. Rare bird forms will be submitted to National Audubon. - Unofficial Results

Sonoma Birding's hands-on binocular boot camp hosted over 260 youngsters plus their parents, helping to “unleash the inner citizen scientist”. Parents and kids were taught basic binocular skills so they could enjoy bird watching and the more adventurous sport of birding. Many were preparing for the upcoming Christmas Bird Count for Kids (CBC4Kids) offered in the Bay Area.
Sonoma Birding, Sonoma Land Trust and USF&W Service partnered to install three new burrowing owl artificial habitats at the SLT Bay Center. There are a total of 10 dual entry units installed at Sears Point in Southern Sonoma. The objective for Sonoma Valley and surronds is to expand a sustainable and safe wintering habitat for the BUOW.
