Laguna Watershed Perspectives: North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park Walk with Laguna Foundation and Regional Parks Naturalists
How is Sonoma Mountain connected to the Laguna de Santa Rosa? Find out on this invigorating and informative 4.5 mile hike to the Bennett Valley Overlook where you can enjoy panoramic views and a picnic lunch. This is a moderate to strenuous hike with significant elevation gain (2,000’ plus). Meet at the Laguna Environmental Center for hot drinks and morning snacks for a brief watershed perspectives presentation, then carpool to the park. On the hike, enjoy the views, do a little birdwatching, look for signs of wildlife, and see what else pops up to explore. Topics will include watershed connections, conservation, wildlife corridors, and more.
Parking fees are included in the $10 event fee. After the hike and lunch on the trail, the group will carpool back to the Laguna Environmental Center by 3:30 p.m.. This event is suitable for ages 12 and up (12-17 year olds must be accompanied by an adult). Heavy rain cancels.
