    Sonoma County voters this fall will have the opportunity to create a dedicated source of funding for their Regional and city parks. The Board of Supervisors agreed Aug. 7 to place a 1/8-cent sales tax for parks on the November ballot. If approved by voters countywide, the measure will help the county and cities maintain parks, reduce wildfire risks, protect waterways and wildlife, open long-awaited parks, expand trails, and offer programs. A key piece of the measure is an expenditure plan that details how the funding will support parks.

    July kicks off the swim season at Veterans Memorial Beach in Healdsburg. With lifeguards on duty daily and swim zones clearly marked, this family friendly beach is one of the safest places to enjoy the Russian River. The calm, deep swimming area is created by a seasonal dam, a feature that takes a fair amount of engineering and has been a summer tradition for decades. See how the dam goes up and some cool historical images in this short video.
