Early Spring Blooms: Vernal Pools of the Santa Rosa Plain, botanical field trip with Sarah Gordon, Laguna Foundation's Conservation Science Program Manager

When: Sat., March 31, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. 2018

The Laguna de Santa Rosa Watershed has some very unique wetland ecosystems called “vernal pools,” temporary pools of water that provide habitat for distinctive plants and animals. Every year is different for vernal pool flora, which depends on many factors such as timing of rainfall, total amount of rainfall, and daytime temperatures, to name a few. This botanical field trip will begin in Heron Hall with hot drinks/snacks and a brief overview of Santa Rosa Plain vernal pool ecology and the Laguna Foundation vernal pool conservation program, followed by a tour of one to two vernal pool sites.

Price: $25-$50 sliding scale
