Sonoma Ecology Center focuses on projects in Sonoma Valley, including the towns of Sonoma, Glen Ellen, Kenwood, Boyes Hot Springs, and Eldridge. We collaborate on projects throughout Sonoma County and beyond.

Physical Address & Directions

We are located in the Sonoma Developmental Center near Glen Ellen but please note that mapping services usually won’t help to find us.

Proceed to the main intersection of Sonoma Developmental Center at 15000 Arnold Drive. Turn east, away from the historic brick administration building, onto Harney Drive. Continue across a narrow bridge, and at the far side of the bridge take an immediate left onto our small driveway. Park in the lot at the end of the drive. View a map.
