Native Plants Sale and Open House

Planting season for California native plant gardens is here! Celebrate this autumnal change at the Laguna Environmental Center while learning about local native plants. Shop for new additions to your garden in our shared nursery with the Milo Baker Chapter of the California Native Plant Society then join us in the landscape for a guided walk in our native plant demonstration garden. It will also be a great opportunity to see the new Heron Hall art exhibit, “Sonoma County Landscape,” by Charles Beck.

Around the Watershed

Your Support is Essential to Us

Wetlands today are disappearing at a rate three times faster than forested areas. In the face of today’s extreme weather, restoring and conserving our remaining wetlands here in Sonoma County is critical.

We are dedicated to restoring riparian forests and wetlands, and conserving vernal pool habitats to ensure this landscape can absorb floodwaters and sustain its rich diversity of wildlife and plant life.

Your help in this effort is of vital importance.
