It’s now the offices for the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, which protects and restores the laguna, aka That Awesome Expanse of Water and Wildlife You See While Riding Your Bike on High School Road. But the Stone Farmhouse can only hold so much, and the foundation this week opens its new Great Blue Heron Hall
