The Collective Vision:
Wildlife Corridor Coalition
A wildlife corridor is a natural open space allowing animal movement and foraging, and bird migration. The woodlands are important habitat for bird nesting. Bobcat, coyote, fox, deer and California Red-Legged Frog find refuge here. Mountain lion and American badger also may rarely move through this wildlife corridor.
This open space has connectivity to the Pt Reyes National seashore to the south, and to the northwest the Sonoma Coast. Northeast toward Penngrove and Cotati towards the Sonoma Mountains.
• Be a model for the balance of community enjoyment of nature and protection of woodland and grassland habitat

• Develop conservation education for youth to strengthen appreciation of these special natural resources
• Preserve scenic vistas of the Petaluma west hills and valley
• Maintain water conservation and groundwater recharge areas
• Prevent urban sprawl by maintaining a greenbelt
