Restoration & Conservation
Restoring Roseland Creek, Santa Rosa
Roseland Creek is an undiscovered jewel in the heart of southwest Santa Rosa. It flows 7 miles from the train tracks through the Roseland district, past the vernal pools at the old Santa Rosa Naval Air Station, to its confluence with the Laguna de Santa Rosa.
Near the headwaters in Roseland, the creek flows through a beautiful, 20 acre patch of oak woodland, riparian forest and native grassland, locally known as the Neighborwood where we recently broke ground on a new restoration project funded by the Sonoma County Water Agency. We are working with local community members and the nearby Roseland Creek Elementary to open up the understory of the existing riparian forest, clear out non-native blackberry, poison oak, and trash with a goal to transform the creek into an outdoor classroom where the students can learn about Roseland Creek and help restore native biodiversity
We invite young explorers ages 6-11 to join us for a week outdoors filled with exploration, discovery, creativity, and games. Register today - spaces are filling up fast!
We are excited to offer a new way to connect to the Laguna from home! See our events listed below and register to participate in one of our FREE webinars or other virtual events.
