From Riverbanks to Floodplains: Watershed Perspectives on the Southern Laguna Discovery Trail

Saturday, April 20, 2019, 4:00 PM

The Laguna de Santa Rosa is an ever-changing landscape, from a submerged wetland more akin to a lake during winter to a web of small streams in the heat of summer. This past February, we experienced firsthand how torrential rains can turn trickling creeks into flowing rivers and low-lying fields into flooded pools. Managing this complex system for the safety of our communities, health of the watershed and enjoyment of our rich backyard ecosystem is a large undertaking, and one that is worked on by many organizations and partnerships throughout Sonoma County. Join the Laguna Foundation and Sonoma Water for a leisurely spring walk on the Laguna Discovery Trail to learn more about our partner projects within the Laguna de Santa Rosa and understand this small piece of our 254-square-mile watershed. We will see past work on the stream channel, restored native plants, and discuss partner watershed projects while keeping an eye out for different insects and animals out enjoying the results of our work. This free walk, just two days before Earth Day, offers a unique opportunity to explore a new area and connect with two inspiring local organizations. Transportation to the Southern Laguna Discovery Trail from the Laguna Environmental Center will be provided as well as light snacks and tea when you arrive. This event is made possible through a partnership with Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation and Sonoma Water. RAIN CONTINGENCY:  In case of those infamous April showers, please know that HEAVY rain cancels.  If the forecast the day before is calling for heavy rain, we will notify you by email on Saturday.  On Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, you can also call (707) 527-9277, ext. 110 to see what the plan is.  CANCELLATION POLICY: If you need to cancel, please notify us as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and for your interest and support of our programs! Please also note that we often need a minimum number of participants to conduct most events. If the Laguna Foundation needs to cancel the event for any reason, we will notify you as soon as possible (at least 1 day prior to the event) and you will receive a full refund. If you have any questions, please contact Allison, the Community Education Program Manager, by email at allison@lagunafoundation.org or by phone at 707-527-9277 xt. 110.
