On hot summer days the cool shady creeks in our Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed are the perfect place for a quick walk or leisurely stroll. They support a dense, multi-story canopy of trees and shrubs that provides shade to hikers and wildlife alike. Join Laguna Foundation staff and Laguna Guides (birders and naturalists) for this delightful adventure of two lesser-known shady oases, Ducker Creek and Brush Creek trails in Santa Rosa’s Rincon Valley.

The walk will be three miles long on mostly flat, unpaved and paved trails, and is suitable for adults and older teens. We will begin at the Laguna Environmental Center in Heron Hall with coffee/tea/light snacks and a brief overview presentation about the Laguna watershed, highlighting these and other lesser-known shady creek walks. After carpooling to Santa Rosa for the walk, we will return to the Laguna Environmental Center by 1:00pm. Participants are welcome to stay afterwards to enjoy a picnic inside delightful Heron Hall or outside at the picnic tables (bring your own lunch). In addition to learning common plants and wildlife of these riparian corridors, we will learn about agency and volunteer efforts to restore and enhance waterways throughout the watershed. Come adventure with us!
