A special opportunity

Summer, 2022: Our very small and mostly volunteer-run organization has been pledged a grant from a community member, and we are opening up that grant to match it. We have so many cool things we would like to do, and being able to dedicate resources to developing new programs will make that possible. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for our organization by the end of the year, and we are over $12,000 of the way there! Have you contributed to our fund yet?

Even better news: Donations over $200 are eligible to receive a free case of Wild Hog Wine! Just email your donation receipt to Daniel Schoenfeld at to place your order. (You can schedule a pickup at Wild Hog Vineyard or the Sonoma County Vintners Co-op in Windsor. Please allow at least one week for delivery.)

We are grateful for your thoughtful donations. The Coast Ridge Forest Council has worked over the past 15 years to increase the resiliency and health of our forested rural area of west Sonoma County. In the face of increasing wildfire danger and drought, we have been committed to growing our impact- and your donations will help make that happen.

From educational community workshops, to facilitating landowner forest management plans, to implementing large-scale fuel reduction projects, to our new community chipper program: we are here to make this landscape more resilient for all of us.

Thank for your encouragement and support.

Yours truly,
Judy, Wanda, Christopher, Daniel, Demetra, and Melissa
