Winter Naturalist Program Seeks YOU!

The magical  Fairfield Osborn Preserve is a gem, just up Sonoma Mountain on Lichau Road. If you love the beauty of nature and want more outside time, take the winter naturalist training. Learn about the natural and cultural history of Sonoma Mountain with university staff and experts. This 4-day training is held Sundays Jan. 13 through Feb. 3 at the Preserve. You’ll gain new insights and skills to enrich yourself and to share with others. As a trained naturalist, you will be welcomed into a community of volunteers who enjoy exclusive events, hikes, and overnight field trips with regional experts. Training is $40. You’ll commit to leading at least five tours for school children (grades 3-5). To learn more, go to  http://web.sonoma.edu/cei/.  Or contact Naturalist Training Coordinator Julie Wittmann at julie.wittmann@sonoma.edu at the SSU Center for Environmental Inquiry.

Get Fit in the New Year

Abe Kleinfeld, the co-owner of Main Street Fitness.The New Year is a good time to get on the right path with your fitness regime. I met with  Abe Kleinfeld,  the co-owner of Main Street Fitness in Downtown PGrove. We talked about advantages of working on strength and balance, especially as we add more years to our dance card! Abe described the science of, say, going downstairs with the laundry basket. We know where the next step is, but as we age, we lose the sensory experience of where that step is. But there’s good news! You can regain the skill and train to revive and keep it. Gardening is another activity we want to keep fit for ourselves. Abe has a client with shoulder and knee pain, and after 6 weeks of training, every ache and pain disappeared. I want some of that!  The studio has a bright, clean and friendly atmosphere. Four trainers are on available to listen to your goals and suggest workouts. The high-intensity, slow strength training approach is used at Main Street to avoid fast and jerky movements which can contribute to injuries. The approach makes this strength training safer than many traditional methods. Abe and I got so excited about the possibilities for our community, we invite you to a short gathering to learn more about Main Street Fitness and, my volunteer passion, the Village Network which serves Petaluma and Penngrove residents.

Sunday, January 27 from 2:30 – 3:30 pm, join us for Aging with Strength, Aging Better Together, at the studio in Penngrove Station, 11790 Main Street, Suite D, downtown PGrove.
