We offer flexible scheduling and opportunities both indoors and outdoors. We have an office in Fairfield and five major properties in Solano County: Jepson Prairie, the King-Swett Ranches, Lynch Canyon, Rush Ranch, and Rockville Trails Preserve.

Help host our 5th Annual Aim for Ag Sporting Clay Shoot!

We expect well over 100 guests for our 5th Annual Aim for Ag & Open Space Sporting Clay Shoot and Luncheon at Birds Landing. Sporting clays is likened to golf with a shotgun as described here. Shooters will have their choice of 50 or 100 clay targets that vary in speed, size and angle, and awards will include "High Overall", "Labor Division", "Ladies Division", and "Under 18". Then they'll enjoy a delicious lunch and get the chance to win fabulous raffle prizes. As volunteers you help make this a fun event and a successful fundraiser!
