Tickets went on sale on Aug. 1, with their first show, “Cry it Out” by Molly Smith Metzler, beginning on Sep. 10. This season will consist of six shows, with no package options offered due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the need to make refunds available if a performance is cancelled. Video streaming of the first three productions is also being offered for people who wish to attend remotely.

Rattlesnakes Zoom presentation

Dr. Emily Taylor, a professor of biology at the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, and the Laguna De Santa Rosa Foundation will showcase one of the most feared reptiles in our midst: the Pacific rattlesnake. As scary as they are, rattlesnakes are one of the most important parts of our ecosystem, as you will learn during this Zoom presentation, along with their history and how to best avoid these creatures. Dr. Taylor has been conducting research on snakes ever since her time as an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, even writing her senior thesis as an English major on the representation of the serpent in the Bible. This event takes place on Aug. 18 from 5:30–6:45 p.m. for free.

Sonoma Coast from the surface to the seafloor event

On Aug. 26 at 7 p.m., Sonoma Land Trust will feature Jennifer Stock, education and outreach coordinator for NOAA’s Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, as she shares photographs of her journeys underwater and educates people about what lies beneath. The waters west of the Sonoma Coast are significant because of their biodiversity; they have been under the protection of the National Marine Sanctuaries since the 1980s. New discoveries are still being made — Stock has participated in the exploration of these habitats in 2017 and 2019, going as deep as 10,000 feet. Registration for this webinar is free, with pre-registration required.
