Our Learning Laguna program has helped introduce more than 11,000 Sonoma County students to the exciting world of the Laguna.

Each year, hundreds of volunteers join us in planting thousands of native trees and plants. We could not accomplish such hard work without your support.

With your support, our Public Education Department will continue to bring workshops to our community such as the popular cordage class with Charlie Kennard.
