About Healdsburg Ridge:

Healdsburg Ridge consists of a wide array of plants and animals including wetlands and oak woodlands, rocky serpentine chaparral and open grasslands. Deer and rabbits are scattered throughout drawing top predators like bobcats and mountain lions. For an area of only 155 acres, the diversity it supports is quite impressive including over 40 bird species and rare plants like serpentine rye grass and a species of Ceanothus that has yet to be described by scientists.

  • Bottle of water, snacks, and lunch for the day

  • Comfortable clothing to protect from the sun (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen)

Opening Circle  

You will be invited to participate in an opening circle at the beginning of the day. In the opening circle, staff will share a Land Acknowledgement. After that, staff leading the day will share their name and pronouns, and possibly a short prompt to cultivate friendly connections. You’ll be invited to share your name and pronouns as well, if you choose.   

At LandPaths, our mission and values lie at the core of everything we do, and we believe the opening circle is crucial to establishing a welcoming culture where everybody feels they belong and is ready to act in common purpose. 

The opening circle is also a time to go over any important safety information or other key logistical details to lay the groundwork fo a day filled with joy, inclusion, care, and connection with the land and each other. If you have any questions about why we do an opening circle, or what happens in the circle, feel free to contact us ahead of time at  


Our staff is certified in the minimum of CPR and First Aid, and they have training and years of experience working in outdoor spaces. All staff has had their backgrounds checked through fingerprinting.
