Welcome to the Green Care Lab
Welcome to the Green Care Lab, where science meets compassion and innovation blends with nature. Founded with a mission to explore the profound connection between our well-being and the natural world, we embark on a journey of discovery, healing, and education. Guided by Dr. Rebecca Calisi Rodríguez's pioneering research in animal behavior, stress physiology, and behavioral neuroendocrinology, we are committed to understanding not only how stress affects us but also how nature can help us heal. Our sanctuary, nestled at Pine Trails Ranch in west Davis, California, stands as a testament to our dedication to creating therapeutic spaces where humans, animals, and gardens flourish in harmony. Whether you're interested in the well-being of our animal companions, the nurturing embrace of our therapeutic gardens, or the dynamic impact of scientific outreach, the Green Care Lab welcomes you to be a part of our community-driven vision. Join us in exploring the transformative power of Green Care, and together, let's cultivate a healthier, happier world.
