Help care for the Laguna and restore critical wildlife habitat - become a Laguna Steward!

Tasks vary depending on the season and include removing old irrigation hardware from successful restoration projects, sewing 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.

What's Up With the Name Change?

After celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2015, Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation is excited to take our long-standing volunteer restoration efforts to the next level. The name change from Keepers to Stewards helps further our central goal of promoting the vital concept of stewardship as we enter our next 25 years. Laguna Foundation does not “own” the Laguna, so the future of this wetland complex and its surrounding watershed depends on each of us taking stewardship of this unique and internationally recognized resource.

The new name also serves the dual purpose of supporting our close and valuable partners, Russian River Keepers by avoiding the confusion of both organizations using the term “keepers.” Russian River Keepers and Laguna Foundation look forward to talking more about community stewardship, and working together with all our supporters to better conserve Sonoma County’s wetlands and waterways.
