Enjoy the gift of time in nature as catalyst for the CBD experience of PEACE: pausing, exhaling, attending, connecting and expressing. Delight in connecting with nature and enhancing your connection with yourself and others. Observe how walking in nature can enhance emotional wellbeing, as reported by Stanford researchers Bratman and Daily at the 2015 National Academy of Science Proceedings. Under the leadership of a Jasper Ridge docent you will learn about the natural history of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the Stanford research conducted on the majestic trails and animal life in Jasper Ridge, and have opportunities to pause, contemplate, and savor your experience in the variety of ecosystems and beauty of Jasper Ridge.

NOTE: To minimize impact on Jasper Ridge, CBD participants will meet at the parking lot at the intersection of Roth Way and Lasuen St to board Marguerite Shuttles engaged to drive the CBD hiking groups from campus to Jasper Ridge and back.

Please read:  A tour is typically 2 hours. These hikes will be similar in the level of exertion called for when walking the DISH. Food is not allowed on the trails. Please bring water to carry with you. Please note children under 14 are not allowed in Jasper Ridge. No pets are allowed on the preserve. Jasper Ridge is about a 20-minute car ride from the main Stanford University campus. Expect to return to your car on campus approximately 3 hours after your start meeting time. Jasper Ridge information is available at jrbp.stanford.edu/tours.php
