Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered how climate change will impact the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed? Why does the Santa Rosa Plain have unique habitats such as vernal pools? What is stream piracy and what does it have to do with Copeland Creek? Learn the answers to these big-picture, landscape-scale questions during our final presentation in our spring Laguna natural history series and use your knowledge to become a better watershed steward. Wendy will give an introduction to the physical Laguna watershed, from how the watershed was formed to why we have the unique water quality problems that we have today and what we can do about them.

Dr. Wendy Trowbridge became Director of Restoration and Conservation Programs in January 2015. She is a wetland plant ecologist who has worked in a variety of systems from the Sacramento River to Ruby Lakes in Northern Nevada to rangelands in Western China. She received a PhD from UC Davis as part of a multidisciplinary study of riparian restoration on The Nature Conservancy's Cosumnes River Preserve. Prior to joining the Foundation, she was a research faculty member at the University of Nevada, Reno where her research focused on invasive species, wetland communities and aquatic food webs. In addition to her academic experience, she has taught environmental education, managed a native plant nursery, and volunteered counting hawks for the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory.
