Celebrating World Wetlands Day:
Laguna Kayaking Adventure by Anita Smith
Laguna De Santa Rosa
Friday, February 2nd, 2018 @ 9:00 am
In celebration of World Wetlands Day, we’re getting outdoors to experience the Laguna up close and personal, and we’d love to have you join us. Kayaking the Laguna gives us a different perspective of this amazing, dynamic place. We’ll enjoy birding, looking for wildlife, and cruising through the upper canopy of oaks while getting some exercise and fresh air. We’ll also keep our eyes open for trash to pick up so it doesn’t flow out to the Russian River and the ocean.
The Laguna de Santa Rosa is one of 2,289 sites around the world designated as a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, an intergovernmental treaty that provides a framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources. This year’s theme for World Wetlands Day is “Wetlands for a sustainable urban future: Urban wetlands making cities livable.” We’ll discuss how a healthy Laguna reduces flooding downstream and how our collaborative restoration, conservation, and education work is helping make the Laguna Watershed more resilient. We’ll meet at Heron Hall (hot drinks and light snacks will be provided), and after a brief welcome and overview, head out to explore. We have all the kayaks, life vests, and paddles needed (or you’re welcome to bring your own). Heavy rain or wind cancels, in which case you’d receive a full refund. Group size is limited, so sign up today!
Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
