Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Help our community deepen its enthusiasm, appreciation and knowledge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa! Laguna Guides are trained volunteers who share their knowledge about the Laguna during public education events at the Laguna Environmental Center and on Laguna trails throughout the watershed. Help our community deepen its enthusiasm, appreciation and knowledge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa!
The Laguna Guides training program prepares volunteers to lead walks, activities and tours on Laguna trails and at the Laguna Environmental Center. Guides also host events at the Center, and help manage Great Blue Heron Hall during public education talks, classes and workshops. Training classes are focused on the natural environment and cultural history of the Laguna, and how to create dynamic visitor experiences. The course fee is $90. Payments can be made in installments and partial scholarships are available.
Training is offered annually in March/April. Please check our website for the 2019 training dates.
Upon completion of the training course, a minimum commitment of 5 volunteer hours each month is requested. Guides are part of the Laguna Education Programs Volunteer Team which includes fun on-going opportunities for continuing education, special outings and social events with fellow education programs volunteers.
We hope you will join us for this life enriching experience that also benefits the Laguna and the community!
