Around the Watershed

Small Acts Add Up

We’ve all heard the old adage, “The best time to plant a tree was yesterday.” At the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, we were planting trees yesterday. And the day before that, and the day before that. We’ve been planting trees for over three decades, to be more precise.

Over thirty years ago, when we planted those first saplings, the work may not have seemed significant to the average observer. But at the Laguna Foundation, we’re committed to the long game.

With your support, riparian forests, freshwater marshes, oak woodlands, and vernal pool grasslands will continue to thrive.
