August 27, 2009 — Sonoma Land Trust (www.sonomalandtrust.org) has launched an $18 million campaign to protect and connect remaining large, at-risk open spaces within Sonoma County. The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (www.moore.org), the world's largest foundation focused on environmental conservation, has contributed the lead gift of $6 million to Redwoods to the Bay: Saving Sonoma County's Signature Landscapes. This initiative will help keep Sonoma County's stunning landscapes intact, develop a network of protected lands, preserve the county's rural character, enhance recreational opportunities, and create a legacy of open lands for future generations to enjoy.
