The Nature of Sebastopol – an Ecosystem Walk, Saturday, April 27, 2019

April 27, 2019
Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – Meet at the downtown plaza
3 to 4 Easy Miles – Moderate Pace

Flooded Laguna near the Rodota Trail, Jan. 10, 2017


Explore how Sebastopol’s built environment works (or doesn’t work!) with our natural environment, both historically and in the present day. This new walk will focus on interactions between urban design and development and our local watersheds, vegetation, geology and more. We will cover 3 to 4 miles with several planned stops to observe examples of these interactions in our town. We’ll return to the Plaza by 11:30.


Wear sunscreen, a hat and walking shoes. Bring water and a snack.
Leaders: Geoffrey Skinner, Librarian, and Joan Schwan, Vegetation Ecologist
