Laguna Stewardship Days

Throughout the year, we offer a different opportunities to take part in ensuring a brighter future for the Laguna. Tasks vary depending on the season and include removing old irrigation hardware from successful restoration projects, sowing seeds, planting native plants and trees, and weeding. Joining the Laguna Stewards is a fun and meaningful way to volunteer while enjoying the outdoors and sharing the company of like-minded people.



Laguna Stewards at the Uplands
Saturday, March 2, 2024, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
FREE. Registration required.

Location: Laguna Uplands Preserve, 6700 Palm Avenue Sebastopol, CA

Build community and learn about plants and wildlife during our hands-on stewardship day at the Laguna Uplands Preserve. It has been 20 years since the restoration of the Uplands began and this beautiful site has come a long way! It is finally returning to its natural beauty and is becoming a significant place for both humans and wildlife.

The area has incredible views of the Laguna Watershed along with a young forest of native trees, a more diverse understory, and plenty of growing shrubs. Join us as we continue our ongoing stewardship and maintenance work, learn about the site’s history and become part of its thriving future.

Come be a part of the next 20 years of ecological restoration work at the Uplands! All ages and abilities are welcomed.

The habitats of the Laguna Watershed are highly variable and dynamic. The Santa Rosa Plain is home to unique ecosystems like vernal pools, seasonal wetlands, and oak savannahs. We steward these habitats for their unique needs with the help of volunteers like you!

What we'll be doing: Let's get down and dirty with a purpose! Join us for a hands-on day at Tomodachi Park where we'll be planting native species along the Laguna channel and vernal pool. Plus, we're tackling those pesky invasive plants to keep things in check.

Roll up your sleeves – grab a snack, sip on some hot beverages, and connect with fellow nature lovers. It's all about hands-on action and community vibes. No frills, just a chill day making a positive impact on our environment. See you there!

PLEASE NOTE: All ages are welcome! No experience is necessary; tools and training are provided.

There is no charge for this event, which is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the work of Ag + Open Space with a quarter-cent sales tax.
