Join LandPaths and Ag + Open Space for an evening of stargazing at the beautiful Cooley Ranch.  Straddling Sonoma & Mendocino counties, the over 19,000 acres of Cooley Ranch is the perfect place to get an unobstructed view of the night sky.  We'll spread out our blankets & camp chairs, share a potluck dinner, & enjoy stories & information from experienced astronomers Jim and Linda, from Wine Country Star Party. 

Where: We will meet at 6:00 pm & caravan into the property (about 30 min – make sure you have enough gas). As it gets dark we’ll gather for the evening under the stars with chairs & blankets to enjoy the night sky. We will all depart the property together as a group. Please RSVP for our carpool location. 

What to bring:

  • warm clothing in layers
  • a blanket, picnic chair, or something to sit on
  • A potluck dinner, and something to share 
  • Your own utensils, cups, plates, etc. 
  • LandPaths will provide soap/water to clean dishes
