Health & Safety Update: As temperatures rise in Sonoma County, so does the risk of potentially harmful algal blooms in water environments, such as the Russian River. Currently, there are educational health advisories in place and the Russian River is open to visitors. Should conditions change to support the growth of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs), information will be posted on the County webpage along with recommended health precautions. Information will be updated as needed. Learn more here.
