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 with local experts. Jenny Blaker, Michael Knappman, Patrick Lei, and Kate Symonds 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 the group will 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!
