Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation
Founded in 1989, the Laguna Foundation is a place-based organization focused on the Laguna de Santa Rosa, one of Sonoma County’s unique wetland areas with over 200 species of birds along with many threatened and endangered species of plants and animals. Their ultimate goal is to take what is now a compromised ecosystem and to restore it to a healthy, biologically functional and diverse system. In addition, to help the Laguna and North San Francisco Bay Area Counties adapt to climate change they are collaborating with other local and regional entities (e.g. Sonoma Ecology Center, Pepperwood Preserve, Sonoma State University Field Stations and Nature Preserves, Global Genesis and others) to bring together land managers, environmental scientists, organizations and government agencies to study and prepare for the predictions of climate change.
