Spring Fling: A Hike and Picnic in the Wilds of the Laguna!

Spring Fling: A Hike and Picnic in the Wilds of the Laguna! 
Laguna de Santa Rosa - Past, Present, and Future
Natural History Talk and Walk with Denise Cadman 
Friday, May 19, 5:30-8:30pm
Beginning at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
Suitable for all ages. Families welcome. FREE. Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org

Join us for a walk on the wild side. You’ll learn a little about the City of Santa Rosa’s recycled water program on a working farm (Stone Farm, home of the Laguna Environmental Center). Then, we will carpool to and explore the 100 acre natural area on the City’s Alpha Farm, enjoying the last beautiful hours before sunset. Bring a picnic dinner to enjoy on the bank of the Laguna de Santa Rosa. Our walk will be casual, stopping to talk and looking for wildlife. We will make our way back just before it gets dark and should arrive back to the Laguna Environmental Center by 8:30pm.

The Laguna is a 254 square mile watershed with over 50 named creeks draining the Santa Rosa plain from Windsor to Forestville. The Laguna is a mosaic of habitats with a high species biodiversity, with endemic and rare species. Management is complicated by a history of altering ecosystem function and diverse land use today, including the majority of Sonoma County’s population. This talk will focus on why the health of the Laguna is important and projects that are helping to improve it.

Denise Cadman is the Environmental Specialist for the City of Santa Rosa. This position involves managing 1,500 acres of irrigated and natural area land in the Laguna de Santa Rosa; planting creek corridors, removing invasive species, conducting studies and performing long-term surveys on plants, birds and mammals. An education program compliments these efforts. Denise grew up in the wilds of Rincon Valley and received her BA, secondary teaching credential and MA from the biology department of Sonoma State University. She teaches at Santa Rosa Junior College as an adjunct faculty member in the Life Science Department in addition to working for the City of Santa Rosa and she and her husband operate a draft horse powered family farm in the Laguna de Santa Rosa. Denise attributes her career in natural resource management to a love of bird watching.

This free program is made possible through a partnership between the Laguna Foundation, LandPaths and the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District. The District permanently protects the diverse agricultural, natural resource and scenic open space lands of Sonoma County for future generations. It is funded through a quarter-cent sales tax that was voted in by the residents of Sonoma County.

"FAUNA" Paintings and Mosaics by Stacey Schuett

NEW Heron Hall Art Exhibit
"FAUNA" Paintings and Mosaics by Stacey Schuett
On display May 5 through August 29, 2017
Heron Hall, Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
Opening Reception Saturday, May 20, 2017, 3:00-5:00pm
FREE. No RSVP necessary. Light snacks provided.
Artist Statement - “I’ve always been drawn to using animals and insects as subjects, for their form and grace and contrast. I mostly make pieces about local wildlife, creatures in our area or nearby. Living near the diversity of the Laguna de Santa Rosa is especially fortunate for me – endless subject matter! Life here is fully present every moment, much of it hidden and secretive, seen and unseen. It’s easy to be aware of how many of us of different species overlap and occupy the same space.” 

“Making my pieces on wooden rigid panels helps with the crackle process, and with the aged, sometimes ancient feel. Building up texture and wearing it away again gives the appearance of roughening that comes with natural aging. I use a number of different materials that often do surprising things, and I find I can’t control everything; chance insists on happening. In the mosaics, I make the tiles myself with some aim of controlling variations of color, but the technique itself is a little awkward, given to flaws and imperfections. I like the flaws. They’re reminders of the beauty of the imperfect, and the fact that all of nature is a work continually in progress. So, being reminded daily, I try to have my pieces reflect a sense of time passing, with a bit of wonder at all the mysteries involved.”

Heron Hall Art Gallery
Reward yourself by visiting this beautiful exhibit in Heron Hall. Heron Hall is located at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road (at the corner of Occidental Rd. and Sanford Rd.), Santa Rosa, CA 95401. The Laguna Environmental Center is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm, but because of the variety of hall uses during the week, please call ahead to make sure you can view the art (707-527-9277, x107). Another great time to view the art exhibit is during our occasional special Saturday Open Houses from 10am-3pm. They are FREE and open to the public. Details here. Proceeds of art sales benefit the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

Upcoming Exhibit
"Natural Juxtaposition" Photographs by Dave Strauss, on display September 1, 2017 through January 4, 2018. Opening reception Saturday September 16, 2017, 3:00-5:00pm.

Meet at Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
$45 per class. Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org
Geared towards adults and older teens.
 
In this birding series, we will celebrate Spring by exploring a different non-publicly accessible corner of the Laguna each month. In March we will enjoy the wide variety of waterfowl that utilizes the deep channels of the Laguna that the winter rains have brought. During the months of April and May the resident songbirds will awaken and the colorful migrants will arrive from Central America with their vibrant songs. There will be a short PowerPoint orientation the first session. Bring binoculars, (spotting scope optional), a field guide, comfortable walking shoes, layered clothing, water and a packed lunch or snacks. We will end each session with a group lunch and make a list of the species which we encountered.

Lisa Hug originally came to California from the Midwest in 1986. She was very involved with Point Reyes Bird Observatory and eventually became a contract biologist and freelance naturalist in the mid-1990s. She has been teaching for the College of Marin, Petaluma Adult School and Point Reyes Field Institute for over a decade. She was president of Redwood Region Ornithological Society for two years and received the Martha Bentley and Ernestine Smith Award For the Dedication to Wildlife Conservation Education in 2009. She is currently a regional coordinator for the Sonoma County Breeding Bird Atlas and she just finished editing the new Birds Checklist for the Laguna de Santa Rosa which can be bought through the Laguna Foundation Store.
