Sonoma State’s Outdoor Education Program Gets Huge Donation From Federated Indians Of Graton Rancheria

Sonoma State University’s outdoor education program is getting a huge financial boost from the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. The tribe is donating more than $2 million that will be used to revitalize the university’s 450-acre Fairfield Osborn Preserve in Penngrove. The funding will also go toward expanding the outdoor education space at the preserve, which is located 15 minutes away from the Rohnert Park campus near Sonoma Mountain. The learning center at the preserve will be renamed as well. The new Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria Learning Center at the Fairfield Osborn Preserve will provide educational information on the Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo tribes’ presence in Sonoma County.
