Stop by the Laguna Environmental Center for this special Saturday Open House celebrating spring and the native plant garden. This is an educational event focused on native plants of the Laguna Watershed, as well as the collaborative restoration, conservation science, and environmental education work being done within the watershed.


Enjoy the Children’s Playscape. Look for Bald Eagles through the binoculars or watch nesting Bluebirds through the spotting scope. Try your hand at weaving a tule “fish,” or create a leaf-rubbing to take home. Laguna Guides and Docents will be on hand to show you around the native plant garden or give you a tour of historic Stone Farm. It will be a great opportunity to see the newest Heron Hall exhibit, "Microcosms: A Closer Look at Mushrooms and Lichens," paintings by Lucy Martin and to visit the natural history and Laguna-oriented gift shop. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the views from the picnic tables outside Heron Hall.


The Milo Baker Chapter of the California Native Plant Society will be selling native plants as part of the Sonoma County and North Marin Eco-Friendly Garden Tour. Learn about water-saving and wildlife-supporting native plants. The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is self-guided and is provided free of charge, pre-registration is required.
