Suitable for adults and children 12 and up, as we’ll be stopping a lot to bird watch, observe, and talk, as well as walking briskly at times to cover the 3 miles. (Not suitable for for strollers, as the 3-mile walk is over uneven dirt roads and paths.) Maximum number of participants 20-25. We will begin in Heron Hall, with a brief welcome/intro, carpool to willowside Rd., walk along the dirt road to the west along Santa Rosa Creek, and access Delta Pond (one of the City of Santa Rosa’s recycled water holding ponds) to walk its perimeter with sweeping views of the Laguna and riparian areas, an area not usually open to the public.Rain cancels.We will explore The Laguna Watershed’s largest tributaries, Santa Rosa Creek. With lots of amazing wildlife and more than 200 species of birds found in the watershed, birders of all ages and skill levels will enjoy this walk along the Santa Rosa Creek Trail. We will meet at the Laguna Environmental Center for snacks and a brief watershed overview, then we will carpool together to the Santa Rosa Creek Trail for a naturalist-led walk. We will cover 3 miles on mostly flat but very uneven terrain (rocky, dirt path, potentially muddy), and return to the Center by 12:30pm.
