The Solano Land Trust the events have no limit on attendance. 

Same with Madrone Audubon there has been no limits on attendance base.

For Sonoma Land Trust, events often have limits to 20 attendees and most book early, via membership announcements. Sometimes people book early then cancel and openings happen. Hence signing up for the waitlist is a great way to gain access to these popular outings. Even if outing is booked, if you are interested sign up on wait list and possibly you'll be able to attend.
