This Land is Your Land!

Lafferty Ranch from Petaluma Under the auspices of Room to Roam, Friends of Lafferty Park will hold a fundraising event to help open publicly-owned Lafferty Ranch. 

We are raising funds to continue our legal and other continuing efforts to open Lafferty to public access. These funds will pay for external services in support of our pro bono legal team, help educate the public on the rare value of Lafferty, and defend our public property rights.

The event is at Lagunitas Brewery in Petaluma, on Tuesday, May 20, from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. There will be music, beautiful photographs, laughter, music & singing, food & drink.
