Sonoma Resource Conservation District

TEAM Program

The TEAM (Teaching Environmental and Agricultural Memories) field trip program is a unique environmental education program offered to elementary youth county wide in partnership with the Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District (RCD). The content of the TEAM program incorporates the significant role that Sonoma County’s characteristic agricultural landscape plays in environmental stewardship. Currently funded by the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District (Sonoma Ag and Open Space District), the program invites elementary students to experience four diverse agricultural properties to learn about everything from the importance of maintaining bee populations for apple production to nutrient management and cheese production on a local dairy, to soil health and heritage melons.

TEAM field trips also emphasize the importance of partnership among diverse stakeholders in protecting our natural resources and the renowned agricultural landscape of Sonoma County.
