What shaped the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed? Why does the Laguna flow from south to north? Was the Laguna really a big lake at one time in history? Geology and hydrology are the driving forces behind life as we know it in the Laguna watershed. Join Nicole Myers, lecturer at Sonoma State University, for a journey through geologic time and history in Northern California. We will compare the Laguna watershed with the marshes of the Central Valley, and end with a closer look at our local geology, including how faults shaped the Laguna and unanswered mysteries that researchers are still studying today.
