Laguna offering guide training
The Laguna de Santa Rosa, a 22-mile channel which feeds the Russian River and drains most of the Santa Rosa Plain, encompasses an ecological system of more than 30,000 acres, which includes creeks, ponds, marshes, forests and meadows.
The Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, located off Highway 12 on the way to Sebastopol holds tours, classes and art shows throughout the year. The Foundation is looking for individuals who love the Laguna and would like to share their passion with others.
The Laguna Guide Training, which costs $75, begins on Wednesday, Sept. 17 and continues on Wednesdays and Saturdays through October. Laguna Guides provide information to visitors on the natural and cultural history of the Laguna, lead public walks and help out during classes and events in Great Blue Heron Hall. Guides are expected to commit to 5-10 hours per month.
