How is Colgan Creek connected to the Laguna de Santa Rosa? Join Regional Parks, City of Santa Rosa, and Laguna Foundation staff and volunteers for a leisurely ~3 mile walk along Colgan Creek Trail to find out! We’ll meet at the Laguna Environmental Center for snacks and a brief overview, then carpool together to the trail to explore cultural and natural history, observe plant and animal life along an urban fringe, learn about creek stewardship and restoration, and get outdoors together - rain or shine! This walk is suitable for ages 12 and up (children must be accompanied by an adult), and the ~3 miles will be walked on mostly flat paved and compacted gravel trails.
