Santa Rosa CA. ~ “Golden hour”, a figurative term for the period just before sun- set, is a great time to explore the blooming vernal pools of the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed. Vernal pools, or temporary pools of water that provide habitat for dis- tinctive plants and animals, are a unique feature of the Santa Rosa plain. Every year is different for vernal pool flora, which depends on many factors such as timing of rainfall, total amount of rainfall and daytime temperatures, to name a few. $35. 5:30-8:30pm Pre-registration required.www. ~ Allison Titus, Community Education Program Manager, Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation (707) 527-9277 x110, allison@
