Stop by the Laguna Environmental Center for this special Saturday Open House celebrating spring and our native plant garden. This is an educational event focused on native plants of our Laguna Watershed, as well as the collaborative restoration, conservation science, and environmental education work being done within the watershed. We will have educational displays from CNPS and other community partners, as well as fun and engaging activities for all ages. Enjoy the Children’s Playscape. Look for Bald Eagles through the binoculars or watch nesting Bluebirds through the spotting scope. Try your hand at weaving a tule “fish,” or create a leaf-rubbing to take home. Our Laguna Guides and Docents will be on hand to show you around the native plant garden or give you a tour of historic Stone Farm. It will be a great opportunity to see the newest Heron Hall exhibit, Microcosms: A Closer Look at Mushrooms and Lichens paintings by Lucy Martin and to visit our natural history and Laguna-oriented gift shop. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the views from our picnic tables outside Heron Hall.

Our friends with the Milo Baker Chapter of the California Native Plant Society will be here selling native plants as part of the Sonoma County and North Marin Eco-Friendly Garden Tour. Learn about water-saving and wildlife-supporting native plants. Buy a few to take home, thereby supporting our local California Native Plant Society chapter while nurturing local wildlife habitat in your own backyard! The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is a public outreach and education program that promotes sustainable landscaping practices by showcasing inspiring gardens throughout Sonoma and Marin Counties. The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is self-guided and is provided free of charge, pre-registration is required here.
