Feb. 2: Urban Wetlands in Santa Rosa

The best way to celebrate World Wetlands Day on Feb. 2 is to experience the wetlands firsthand with the staff at Laguna de Santa Rosa, who lead a kayak adventure of the watershed, designated as a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. Aside from amazing views, the outing offers insight into how the laguna plays into the larger natural framework in Sonoma County. Kayaks, life vests, hot drinks and snacks will be provided, though space is limited, so pre-registration is required to kayak on Friday, Feb. 2, at Heron Hall, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa. 9am. $50. 707.527.9277.
