A panel of Press Democrat writers, environmentalists and educators will take a stab tonight at articulating Sonoma County's strong but hard-to-define sense of place.

The second annual Stories About Place, hosted by Landpaths, is 7-9 p.m. at the Sonoma County Museum in Santa Rosa. Admission is free, but reservations are advised.

The panel includes environmentalist and former candidate for county supervisor Fred Euphrat, Petaluma River Keeper Dave Yearsley and usable-plants expert Autumn Summers.

LandPaths, a nonprofit group working in partnership with the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, leads public outings on protected land.

Information, reservations: 524-9318 or e-mail landpaths-outings@sonic.net.
