Taking Flight

A Benefit for the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation


Thank you to all who helped make this year's event a sucess! We hope to see you next year!

We had a fabulous evening among friends at our Taking Flight benefit on April 18th surrounded by the beauty of the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed at the Wild Oak Saddle Club. Thanks to the generosity of many long-time supporters as well as many new ones, we raised $185,000 in critical funding to advance our mission of restoring and conserving the Laguna and inspiring public appreciation for this Wetland of International Importance.

This year, we partnered with the Wild Oak Saddle Club, a beautiful venue with views of the surrounding mountains which comprise the upper reaches of the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed. A special thanks to our guest speakers Vic Trione and Grant Davis who each inspired our guests join in the spirit of helping the Laguna Foundation reach new heights for conservation and nature-based education, alongside auctioneer extraordinaire, Kenn Cunningham.

Relive the festivities from our 2024 event!
