~ The Great Charlie Brown Christmas Tree Hunt ~
Sunday, December 15th
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
*Enjoy a hike at the beautiful Riddell Preserve*
*Hunt for your favorite non-traditional Christmas Tree*
*Sip a cup of hot apple cider at Riddell Cabin*
Bring your family to Riddell Preserve, outside of Healdsburg, to find your non-traditional Christmas tree for this holiday season. LandPaths welcomes you for a very special opportunity to find solace in nature alongside others in your community, as we work together to heal - both ourselves and the land. Harvest a free Christmas Tree and help our fire reduction work at Riddell Preserve at the same time! Folks will be invited to remove Douglas fir in an area of the preserve where thinning is necessary for fuel reduction stewardship of the land. Participants will be able to take home a Doug fir for their Christmas tree! You are invited to harvest as many trees as you like. Lots of different sizes available and while these are NOT manicured trees like you may purchase at a Christmas Tree Farm, they are filled with meaning and love. In harvesting this tree, you will have helped fire reduction work for this land at the same time! Hot cider will be available. Trees are free but donations appreciated :)
