Natural history outing with Laguna Foundation Staff and Guides
Join us for an enjoyable early morning stroll along Irwin Creek to Lower Stone Farm. On this two- 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 highlight some of the plants used in restoration work that support wildlife, water quality, and us all, and we’ll see the beginnings of a new seasonal wetland/vernal pool restoration project. Starting in Heron Hall with hot drinks/light snacks 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 peaceful Lower Stone Farm and the Laguna channel. There, we’ll linger close to the wildlife-rich confluence of Irwin Creek and the Laguna to quietly observe the comings and goings of egrets, herons, and whatever other wildlife might make an appearance. Suitable for adults and children 9 years old and up (children must be accompanied by an adult). Heavy or significant rain cancels, in which case, you’d receive a full refund. We hope you’ll join us!
Begin and end at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
