Honoring Our Earth

At the top of a sunny, oak-laden hill, EarthRise resides on land that has been considered sacred for generations. Once home to the Miwok tribe of the San Francisco Bay, the land brims with life, from the canopies of trees to the local deer, birds of prey, and long-eared rabbits. We are committed to continue the legacy of respect for, and harmony with, this sacred place.
