Save Arnold Drive and West Sonoma Valley Conservation League

Since 1988 SAD has pressed for the policy to keep development of the Arnold Drive Corridor in Sonoma Valley California restricted to residential and agricultural projects in addition to preserving as much open space, valley oaks, wetlands and natural lands as possible. Current projects include resisting location of the Presentation School founded by the Sebastiani Family and friends on Arnold Drive in partnership with RAM - Reject Arnold Madness, which would endanger sensitive riparian and valley oak habitat, fighting for preservation of wetlands at Sears Point Raceway and voicing concerns over environmental mis-management of Ernie Smith Park on Arnold Drive in Sonoma Valley.

Detailed Information:
Since 1988 Save Arnold Drive (S.A.D) has been involved in efforts to save the unique environment of the Arnold Drive Corridor principally from non agricultural and non residential development, and unnecessary road expansion. These efforts have been geared to prevent loss of native plants including endangered valley oaks, wetlands and related ecosystems. The Arnold Drive Corridor stretches along the path of Arnold Drive from Glen Ellen to Schellville in Sonoma Valley California. Along Arnold Drive hundreds of endangered Valley Oaks stretch down from the hillsides and the valley floor and cascade over Arnold Drive. Area residents, visitors and travelers feel a special bond to the unique environment of the Arnold Drive Area and most are interested in preservation efforts to help the Arnold Drive Corridor remain a special place to live and visit. Efforts of S.A.D and many others helped to significantly scale back a large reconstruction project originally proposed in 1988 for Arnold Drive by then Sonoma County Supervisor Janet Nicholas which would have resulted in the destruction of hundreds of valley oaks and other native plants. Since that time, S.A.D. has remained vigilant in keeping an eye towards continued preservation of the area.
