SANTA ROSA, CALIF. — Sonoma Land Trust is hosting an afternoon of fun activities for the community on June 9 at Howarth Park in celebration of nature, parks and the future planned Santa Rosa Southeast Greenway. Child in the Wild: Family Fun Day is free to the public and will take place from 1 to 4pm at the Howarth Park Lawn and Gazebo located at 630 Summerfield Avenue in Santa Rosa.
This family-friendly event will feature performances by the Banana Slug String Band, De Colores: Music of the Americas, and Safari Encounters, an interactive educational program introducing kids to live wild animals — plus a bounce house, hula hoops, tumbling mats, and more! Children will also enjoy nature-oriented activities led by partners in the Southeast Greenway project: City of Santa Rosa Recreation and Parks, Sonoma County Ag + Open Space, Sonoma County Regional Parks and Sonoma Water, as well as the Land Trust and Santa Rosa Southeast Greenway.
Members of the Santa Rosa Southeast Greenway, who are planning a 47-acre urban greenway park and open space that will connect Howarth Park to nearby high-density urban neighborhoods, will be there to present a map of the new greenway and update families about the future park.
“We are very excited to be able to offer this wonderful afternoon of fun for families in a park that is so well-loved by the community,” says Ingrid Stearns, Sonoma Land Trust’s on the land program manager. “The performers and environmental educators are top-notch and are not to be missed!”
Funding for this free event is being provided by Sonoma Land Trust, Sonoma Water, Community Foundation Sonoma County and Santa Rosa Southeast Greenway.
