MISSION STATEMENT                   DONATIONS                    WHO WE ARE

“Cities make money by building urban sprawl and sprawl is fueled with water. Developers, the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA), city governments and County Supervisors exaggerate water availability to continue irresponsible growth. This course needlessly demolishes open space and permanently destroys water resources.”

—H.R. Downs, President, O.W.L. Foundation

One of Sonoma County's endangered vernal pools. These marvelous creations of nature, which only appear during the rainy winter months, have their own species of miniature shrimp, red-legged frogs and other life unique to California. Vernal pools are disappearing rapidly and being replaced by asphalt, shopping centers and tract housing developments.
