Become an EnviroLeader!

The EnviroLeader program is available to Sonoma Valley teens between the ages of 14 to 18 and offers hands-on education in the fields of sustainable agriculture and restoration.

The EnviroLeader program provides Sonoma Valley teens with the opportunity to gain essential job and life skills through practical environmentally focused training. Among other projects, we are currently promoting reforestation of the Highway 12 corridor through our Trees for the Springs project. EnviroLeaders will learn urban forestry, native plants and horticulture, with training in public speaking.

EnviroLeaders are mentored by Sonoma Ecology Center educators and other professionals in the environmental field. They meet twice a week, at the Sonoma Garden Park and other sites around the Valley.

We’re looking for students who are good team players, have strong communication skills, are willing to learn and have an interest in working on sustainable communities and climate change. Bilingual students are encouraged to apply!
