Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation

Founded in 1989, the Laguna Foundation is a place-based organization focused on the Laguna de Santa Rosa, the second largest freshwater wetland in Northern California and one of Sonoma County’s richest wildlife areas with over 200 species of birds along with many threatened and endangered species of plants and animals.

Our ultimate goal is to take what is now a very compromised ecosystem and to restore it to the healthy, biologically diverse system it once was. That means:

  • We plant thousands of trees each year to restore lost animal habitat 
  • We perform the scientific research required protect wildlife and to inform our restoration activities 
  • We study and, if possible, eradicate invasive non-native species threatening the Laguna 
  • We monitor water quality to ensure it is healthy for humans, plants and animals 
  • We take hundreds of children into the Laguna each year in an effort to inspire them to share our dedication to the Laguna and environmental stewardship.

In addition, to help the Laguna and County adapt to climate change we are leading the effort by bringing together other environmental scientists, organizations and government agencies to study and prepare for the predictions of climate change.
