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.

Spring Birding in the Laguna Bird Watching Adventures with L


Spring Birding in the Laguna
Bird Watching Adventures with Lisa Hug
Sundays, March 26, April 23, and May 21, 8:30am-1:00pm
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.

Close-Up and Macro Photography Workshop with professional p


Close-Up and Macro Photography Workshop 
with professional photographers Susan and Neil Silverman
Saturday, June 3, 8:00am-3:30pm
Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
Suitable for adults and teens (teens must be accompanied by an adult).
Cost: $85. Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org


What is the difference between the “usual” good photo and an exciting, different and intriguing image? You got it, Macro and Close-up photography!!! It can open a whole new world to your photo experience, your vision and your creativity. So often we don’t stop to “smell the roses,” and often we don’t stop to really see that “rose.” This workshop will open your eyes and change your perspective to find some new and beautiful ways of experiencing the Laguna and life around you. You might find yourself lost in a whole new world; and you did not have to fall down the rabbit hole! We will have a two-hour lecture, demonstration and discussion on the techniques and challenges with close-up photography (it takes a little more than just moving your feet in close), and then we will go out and about in the theater of the Laguna with our cameras and photograph this new wide world around you. Near the end of the workshop, we will return to Heron Hall and share images and results. Participants bring their own lunch. Hot drinks and snacks are provided.

Susan and Neil Silverman are a husband-wife team who have taught and photographed together for over twenty years. Their passion behind the lens is transmitted not only through their images, but to their students as well. They have been leading their own workshops for over ten years and taught for Great American Photography Workshops for ten years; have taught for Better Photo.com, Santa Fe School, PPA affiliates, PPC, B&H Photo, Pacific North West Art School, Gualala Art Center, Santa Rosa Junior College, and many more.

Full-Moon Exploration of Irwin Creek and Lower Stone Farm


Full-Moon Exploration of Irwin Creek and Lower Stone Farm
Natural History Walk and Picnic with Kevin Munroe
Friday, June 9, 5:30pm-9:00pm
Beginning at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
$30. Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org

Join us for this special full-moon evening adventure, including a picnic dinner alongside the Laguna in an area not usually open to the public. Bring your own picnic, and we'll provide the hors d’oeuvres, dessert and hot drinks! On this 1.5 to 2 mile walk, over mostly flat but uneven terrain, we’ll explore the beautiful area’s animal and plant life and learn about the history of Stone Farm and the on-going collaborative restoration work that’s bringing back a thriving ecosystem. We'll also focus on the critters large and small that come out at dusk and the plants used in restoration work that support wildlife, water quality, and us all. 

Starting in Heron Hall with hors d’oeuvres and a brief presentation, we'll head out for a leisurely amble across the picturesque hay field to Irwin Creek, and across Sanford Rd. to quiet Lower Stone Farm and the Laguna channel, where we'll enjoy our picnic dinners (tarps to sit on provided). We'll start heading back after sunset, keeping our ears and eyes open for resident owls, coyotes, egrets, river otters, mink, frogs, bats and any other emerging evening wildlife. Back at cozy Heron Hall, we'll enjoy yummy dessert and hot drinks. Suitable for adults and youth 9 years old and up (children must be accompanied by an adult). Heavy/significant rain cancels (in which case, you'd receive a full refund). Details sent upon registration.

Kevin Munroe is the Laguna Foundation’s Executive Director. Kevin developed his passion as a naturalist in early childhood and subsequently transformed this interest into a rich career that includes conservation resource management, restoration, and environmental education. Among his accomplishments was leading a 50-acre wetland restoration project within Huntley Meadows Park, a well-known park in Fairfax County's Potomac River Watershed, roughly 12 miles NE of Washington, D.C. In his diverse career, Kevin has excelled in building community partnerships, diversifying fundraising activities, and working with a variety of public and private agencies that include the Army Corps of Engineers, US Fish and Wildlife Services, the Audubon Society, and more.
