World Wetlands Day 2021 is particularly special to Sonoma County because it marks ten years since the Laguna de Santa Rosa was first designated as a Wetland of International Importance under the United Nations’ Ramsar Convention. During this informative and visually beautiful presentation, we will explore the critical role of wetlands on a global scale and journey across a diversity of wetland habitats through the US, California, and the Bay Area to our own Laguna de Santa Rosa. There is no charge for this event, which is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who fund the work of Ag + Open Space with a quarter-cent sales tax.
