Help the Laguna Foundation community events thrive! We offer a wide range of presentations, outings and workshops all year long to deepen our appreciation for the Laguna de Santa Rosa, connect with nature, and inspire a vibrant community dedicated to lifelong learning.

These educational and outreach events are not possible without volunteer support! At each event, Laguna Guides are needed to help with a variety of tasks including: engaging participants and sharing about the Laguna, program set-up of tables and chairs, direct parking, processing merchandise sales, clean-up, and help build enthusiasm and appreciation for the Laguna de Santa Rosa, a Wetland of International Importance. Guides not only help support the events, but they have the opportunity to attend those events for free!

  • Meet the Laguna Watershed training on Thursday, September 19 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
  • Training inside Great Blue Heron Hall on Saturday, September 21, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.

Training course fee covers a training binder, name tag, and lunch on 9/28. If cost is a barrier, please email: volunteer@lagunafoundation.org. Upon completion of the training course, a minimum commitment of 3 volunteer hours each month is requested. Laguna Guides volunteer year-round, primarily on evenings and weekends. Guides are part of the Laguna Education Team which includes fun opportunities for continuing education, special outings, and social events with fellow education volunteers.
