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.

Presented in Partnership with

Laguna Stewards at Irwin Creek Stewardship Day with Ag + Open Space
Saturday, November 13. 9:00 am – 12:30 am.
FREE. Pre-registration required.

Location: Park at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Rd

Build community and learn about plants and wildlife during our hands-on stewardship day out at Irwin Creek! This special restoration site is an important wildlife corridor down to the Laguna in the Santa Rosa Plain. In recent history, the project area was heavily cultivated and was almost completely devoid of native trees and shrubs. After a couple of phases of habitat restoration work, Irwin Creek now has a young forest of native riparian trees, a more diverse understory, and plenty of shrubs to provide habitat for wildlife. Join us to continue our ongoing stewardship and maintenance tasks, learn about the site history, and practice your plant identification skills!

PLEASE NOTE: Minors must be accompanied by an adult. No experience is necessary; tools and training are provided. We will be walking about three quarters of a mile off-trail on flat but uneven ground to the project site. Please let us know in advance if you can no longer attend so we can offer a spot to someone on the waitlist. Heavy smoke or rain cancels.

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.
