After 23 years, Expeditionary Learning is still inspiring students to get out of their comfort zone

“The main goal is getting kids out of the classroom and into nature, learn more about nature and about conservation and learning about your surroundings. They also learn how to camp and cook. We also have them do field guides, we have them pick different species of animals, plants and insects and do in depth studies,” Clites said of the program.


Never forget

At 8:46 a.m. when the first plane flew into the World Trade Center during the September 11 terror attacks, several members of the Department of Public Safety payed tribute to those lost and affected by the events that occurred on September 11, 2001. They walked the 110 floors (the height of each of the twin towers) in full fire gear using the stair climbing machines at the Rohnert Park 24 Hour Fitness. It’s a small tribute to our brothers and sisters in New York and a testament of our dedication to the citizens of Rohnert Park. First responders all over the country make the ultimate sacrifice on a daily basis. This is our small way to show our commitment to our peers our department, and our community.  Photo courtesy of Chrissy Jackson

A jewel hidden in the library

The Friends of the Library bookstore is located in the Rohnert Park-Cotati Library across from the circulation desk and is open every day at 10 a.m. As you walk into the main library, look across the lobby and discover the well-stocked gem of a bookstore.
