Re-Oaking North Bay is an initiative to restore our native oak communities in places where they could once again thrive.


We are thrilled to release a new strategy for bringing valley oaks back to Napa and Sonoma Valleys. This 15-page, richly illustrated report presents a straightforward approach to reoaking that is grounded in science. At the heart of the strategy is a map that shows areas in both valleys where we should focus our attention towards planting new oaks and protecting old oaks.


Re-Oaking North Bay was developed by the San Francisco Estuary Institute, Napa RCD, and Sonoma RCD, with insightful collaboration from a long list of partners. This strategy was funded by the North Bay Watershed Association.


You can view a PDF of the strategy here and printed copies of this publication are currently at the Napa & Sonoma RCD offices!


Napa RCD is currently looking for landowners that would like to plant valley oaks. We can work with you to see if there are good spots on your property to add new oaks, or possibly other types of native trees. Need help doing the planting? We have some suggestions for that too.
