On the top of the ridge in Petaluma, we love and welcome the rain! Our hundreds of Oaks will drink up as much as Mother Nature will give! We’ve only had just a few short hours of this precious resource from the sky, yet a new crop of eager green shoots is peeking through the yellow grasses of our summer-dried hillsides.

We know rain can be messy and uncomfortable to some, but don’t worry if you forget your umbrella when you visit EarthRise this fall and winter and get caught in a sudden downpour–we’ve got you covered with large umbrellas placed throughout the campus for your use. We’ve got some great programs coming to EarthRise during our wetter months, check them out below and hope to see you here singing in the rain!

In service,
Lisa Batto
General Manager
