Landpaths featured in NY Times
Landpaths and the Bohemia Ecological Preserve near Camp Meeker were recently featured in a New York Times article.
The article pointed out that while not owned by California State Parks Department, the preserve has become a new park in Sonoma County under a unique arrangement between the nonprofit and the owner of the property, Ted Swindells.
The New York Times interviewed Craig Anderson of Landpaths, which has taken over management of the Old Grove near Occidental and Willow Creek State Park, among other properties. It regularly provides orientation days to educate the public about the resources that need protection, and it holds regular stewardship days to maintain the properties.
“We call what we do ‘people-powered parks,’ ” Anderson told Times reporter Greg Beato. “As the government’s been less able, the people are stepping up.”
