4th Annual Protect Rural Napa Potluck Picnic & BBQ

Silent Auction and Drawing for Round Trip Air Ticket Anywhere in the U.S.

SUNDAY, MAY 21, 2017 1-4PM Ho/Hocker Residence, 3460 Soda Canyon Road
BYOB, a dish to share [A-M Salads, N-Z Dessert], a chair to sit on (and your checkbook)!

We provide the meat for the BBQ
$10 suggested donation

Commercial tourism-oriented developments increasingly threaten the character of Napa's rural landscape. On Soda Canyon Road, Mountain Peak Winery, the Caves at Soda Canyon, and Relic Winery propose drastic increases in traffic and wine production under the guise of "agriculture." Let's preserve what makes this place so special!

Join your neighbors and friends for the opportunity to carouse and take stock of the issues that bind us together, and add your fundraising contribution to the effort to protect this special place and places like it throughout Napa County. Plans for live music are in the works.

PRN at Earth Day Napa 2017

We had a successful day at Earth Day. We had two winners of the jelly bean jar guess! One, as you can see was very pleased! We handed out 50+ picnic fliers and PRNEF brochures.

There were several folks who were very much interested in attending the picnic on May 21st and learning more about the Mountain Peak Winery and the issues of tourism development in the watersheds. More Information on the picnic is here.

Our presence at Earth Day!

Protect Rural Napa has been created in an effort to reinforce the original intentions of the Ag Preserve through local community support and action. As residents , we have the opportunity to challenge the adverse impacts of commercial opportunism that the county has seemed to encourage in the last few years. We need to act on that opportunity.

Protect Rural Napa, established in 2014, is a public benefit corporation, dedicated to:
Promoting awareness of land conservation in environmentally sensitive areas in Napa County.
  • Preserving the agricultural nature of the County of Napa.
  • Providing educational outreach materials to affected areas, including neighborhoods and residents of Napa County.
  • Making grants to organizations that share a similar specific purpose.
