NeWTs – Neighbors Working Together

…for a water-wise, fire-smart, and wildlife-friendly Sonoma Valley!

Are you a Sonoma Valley resident interested in exploring solutions to local ecological issues, while also connecting with fellow community members?

Joining NeWTs as a leader or a team member can help you achieve your goals. We are stronger when we work together! NeWTs supports residents in learning and doing: by providing you with tools you need to connect with your neighbors, try a new project, and make a difference.

We invite you to learn more at our NeWTs: Neighbors Working Together Program Launch Party!

How NeWTs Works:

Sonoma Ecology Center will train local leaders to bring together a team of fellow community members, to meet and learn, and then take actions. We support our NeWTs leaders as they guide their team, and help the team take on activities such as installing low-flow faucets, adding a rain barrel to your garden, replacing lawn with native plants, and reducing sources of pollution in your home and yard. Participation in NeWTs is FREE!  All participants receive locally relevant resources, water-saving tools, rebates and coupons.

By taking action through NeWTs, we will:

  • Protect our community from the symptoms of drought
  • Protect important wildlife habitat for many species
  • Reduce potential flood damages Reduce pollution in our creeks, the San Pablo Bay, and beyond
  • Create fire-smart landscapes and neighborhoods
  • Get to know each other better, strengthening our community

Thanks to NeWTs funders and donors!
