The David Bouverie Scholarship Fund of Audubon Canyon Ranch provides academic scholarships to graduates of the Bouverie Junior Naturalist (Juniper) Program. It was established in memory of Phyllis Ellman, a longtime ACR Board member, supporter, "founding mother" of the Bouverie Preserve Environmental Education Program, Bouverie docent, and a member of the Quercus Quire (the ACR choir). Phyllis requested the Fund be named after David Bouverie, who talked about the need to provide financial support to motivate students with a sincere interest in higher education and the natural sciences. The Dennis and Carol Ann Rockey Fund of the Marin Community Foundation established the Fund in June of 2009 with a grant of $25,000. Since then many ACR supporters have contributed to the Fund, which has since doubled in size.
