Exploring the Historic Headwaters of the Laguna de Santa Rosa Walk
Explore the upper reach of the Laguna de Santa Rosa from downtown Cotati to the historic “headwaters” on a gentle, level, (but not wheelchair accessible) 3-mile loop walk. A number of local experts will share their knowledge and insights of the natural and cultural history of the area. This leisurely amble will include highlights about the Ross Street vernal pools; Cotati Creek Critters restoration and education work; Rohnert Park's Lydia Commons Community Garden where you’ll stop for a picnic lunch; and the surprising historic headwaters of the Laguna de Santa Rosa.
Bring your own lunch, but delicious cookies will be provided! Jenny Blaker and Michael Knappman will lead the loop walk from downtown Cotati to the historic headwaters of the Laguna and back, along with Laguna Foundation staff and Guides, and special guest speakers Keenan Foster and Kate Symonds.
Meeting in Cotati (directions and details sent upon registration). This walk is most suitable for adults (slow with lots of stops). Pre-registration required.
