Learn how grazing practices can create healthier grasslands and help reverse climate change by building soils. This unique experience is hosted by longtime Pac Hort supporter and board member, Don Baldocchi. Our day includes a simple lunch, an in-depth discussion with ranch manager, Jeff Mundell, about holistic resource management, and a guided tour of the operations, culminating in a picnic on the ridge overlooking the Pacific. Bring your swimsuit and hiking shoes, and get ready to explore on your own at the conclusion of the day.
