Did you know that Alpha Farm, a City of Santa Rosa working farm, also has a 100-acre natural area along the main channel of the Laguna? A restoration effort to increase Laguna riparian biodiversity, Alpha Farm hosts wildlife and wonders not often seen by the public. And, there’s no better guide than longtime steward and expert naturalist Denise Cadman to tell the stories and nature notes of this landscape during California Biodiversity Week. Bring your coffee or tea and enjoy a morning outdoors together learning and experiencing nature.

Denise Cadman has been an environmental steward of the Laguna for more than 25 years. She grew up in the wilds of Rincon Valley and earned her BA, secondary teaching credential, and Master of Arts degree in biology from Sonoma State University. She works as an Environmental Specialist for the City of Santa Rosa focused on creek stewardship, environmental education and resource management. Additionally, she teaches at Santa Rosa Junior College as an adjunct faculty member in the Life Science Department. Denise has been integral to teaching and inspiring a love of the Laguna through the Laguna Foundation’s docent training program since its inception in 1998. Denise attributes her career in natural resource management to a love of birds.
