Celebrating World Wetlands Day: Laguna Kayaking or Hiking A

Celebrating World Wetlands Day: 
Laguna Kayaking or Hiking Adventure* 
With Laguna Foundation Staff 
* If conditions are not suitable for kayaking, we’ll go for a hike instead!
Thursday, February 2, 2017, 9:00am-Noon 
Meeting at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
$50. Pre-registration required at http://lagunafoundation.org/laguna_walks_classes.shtml 


In celebration of World Wetlands Day, we’re getting outdoors to experience the Laguna up close and personal, and we’d love to have you join us!  If the Laguna water level is high enough and if the weather is cooperative (not too windy or too rainy), we’ll go kayaking.  Otherwise, we’ll go for a hike instead, rain or shine.  We’ll let you know the day before which activity we’ll be doing so you can plan accordingly.  We have all the kayaks, life vests, and paddles needed.  If you have your own kayak that you prefer using, let us know so we can coordinate.  Kayaking the Laguna gives us a different perspective of this amazing, dynamic place.  We’ll enjoy birding, looking for wildlife, and cruising through the upper canopy of oaks while getting some exercise and fresh air.  We’ll also keep our eyes open for trash to pick up so it doesn’t flow out to the Russian River and the ocean!  The Laguna de Santa Rosa is one of 2,247 sites around the world designated as a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, an intergovernmental treaty that provides a framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources. This year’s theme for World Wetlands Day is “Wetlands for Disaster Risk Reduction” http://www.worldwetlandsday.org/.  We’ll discuss how a healthy Laguna reduces flooding downstream and how our collaborative restoration, conservation, and education work is helping make the Laguna Watershed more resilient.

Tour leaders include Laguna Foundation staff members Dr. Wendy Trowbridge, Director of Restoration and Conservation Science, and Anita Smith, Public Education Manager, as well as Laguna Docent Jim Dempsey and Laguna Guide Dan Gurney.  We’ll meet at Heron Hall (hot drinks and light snacks will be provided), and after a brief welcome and overview, we’ll head out.  Group size is limited, so sign up today!  Questions?  Email anita@lagunafoundation.org.

Open House in Celebration of World Wetlands Day!

Open House in Celebration of World Wetlands Day! 

Thursday, February 2, 10am-3pm
Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
Free! No RSVP necessary

Come learn about the Laguna and the Laguna Foundation. Guides will be available to answer your questions. Tea and cookies will be served. 

Since 1971, wetlands all over the world have been designated by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands to highlight the importance of wetlands and the ecosystem services they provide. The Laguna de Santa Rosa received this distinction in 2011.

The Laguna Wetlands is of international importance because of the rare and endangered plant and animal species found here, the vast biodiversity of the region, and our unique vernal pool environments. As Sonoma County's richest wildlife area, the Laguna Wetlands bring nutrients and water to thousands of acres of farmland - helping fuel spring growth and autumn harvest. We live in a special place - one recognized not just locally, but internationally. 

To celebrate your local wetland, please stop by for this special Open House and consider making a donation to support our work to conserve and restore the Laguna for people and wildlife, and for many more generations.

Tools for Building Immunity

Tools for Building Immunity

Do you feel stressed?

While most people would answer “yes” to this question, very few realize the implications of stress on their health.  In 1984, Dr. Kiecolt-Glazer performed a controlled study of the effect of stress hormone cortisol on the functioning of the immune system.  Results of this study indicated a reduced functioning of the immune system.  

According to Dr. Mary Meagher, “People exposed to chronic social conflict experience high levels of stress and consequent dysregulation of the immune system, thereby increasing vulnerability to infectious and autoimmune disease.”

Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary is presenting a workshop on building immunity, giving you tools to both relax your nervous system if your are feeling stressed and self-help techniques for building immunity.

Included in this day-long experience:

  • Chi Gung and meditation practices to manage stress
  • Presentation of essential oils, herbs and foods to strengthen the immune system
  • Self-massage techniques, including lymphatic self-massage and self-acupressure, to increase immune functioning
  • Cedar Enzyme Footbath and 75-minute Swedish-Esalen massage to relax and unwind
  • Healthy Organic farm-to-table lunch

Space is Limited! Reserve Early!

All Inclusive: Morning Session, Organic Lunch & Spa Treatment $239

Raizelah Bayen is the Director of Training and the Massage Therapist Supervisor at Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary. She has over 25 years in the field of massage, and over 15 years of experience an instructor in a massage certification program. Her specialties include Eastern Massage Modalities and Acupressure, Pregnancy Massage, and Body Mechanics for Bodyworkers.

NEW Heron Hall Art Exhibit “Birds of the Laguna”

This beautiful exhibit features local artist Diana Majumdar’s mixed media and encaustic paintings of birds and landscapes of the Laguna de Santa Rosa. In this show Diana explores the connections between humans and birds in Sonoma County. “Birds are all around us. We live together. My works are inspired by their beauty and our coexistence.” Gathering materials and inspiration from hiking the Laguna trails and from the grounds around Heron Hall, Diana paints the birds from photographs she takes. She combines various media into the finished painting: watercolor, ink, graphite, collage, and chine cholle. Then she seals the surface with wax and paints on top of it with oils. For this show she also incorporates articles from the local paper on local bird watching, texts on common bird populations in Sonoma County, and research on bird population decline. 

About her process, Diana explains, “Combining media is not only fun but intriguing. Sometimes I start a painting knowing exactly what the goal is, and sometimes I start with one image or object that catches my eye. While hiking along the Laguna, I’ll see red winged blackbirds sitting on branches -- the image just stays with me and I’ll start working from that impression.  I was initiated into bird watching by my younger son’s natural interest in birds. He and I went on hikes armed with binoculars and camera. Watching and photographing birds then lead me to sketching and then painting them. Appreciation of birds offers moments of beauty and inspiration. I’m more interested in the birds that we find among us rather than exotic species from faraway lands. Estuaries, rivers and wetlands are places to look for birds, but we often take for granted the wealth of birdlife in our backyards. As the urban and suburban areas keep growing and replaces natural habitat, some disappear but some choose to stay and become part of our lives.”

The Heron Hall Art Gallery at the Laguna Environmental Center exhibits multiple shows per year of nature-themed art, sales of which supports the educational and conservation efforts of the Foundation.  Heron Hall is open Monday through Friday 9am-5pm, but because of the various uses of the hall, please call in advance to ensure it will be open for viewing the art, 707-527-9277, ext. 110.
