Since incorporation in 1962, Audubon Canyon Ranch has protected wild landscapes, which today total 5,000 acres from the shores of Tomales Bay in Marin County to the wildlands of the Mayacamas Mountains in northeastern Sonoma County. On these lands stewarded by ACR, native plants and animals have habitat in which to thrive, and scientific studies have resulted in significant gains for wetlands and other ecosystems. And over the past 42 years, more than 200,000 students have learned about nature through ACR’s School Programs.
As we celebrate Audubon Canyon Ranch’s 50th anniversary and its magnificent preserves and vibrant programs, we are reminded how ACR was built by and thrives today thanks to its founders, supporters and volunteers. We thank and honor those who made these achievements possible.
Together we've made great progress, but there is more work ahead. Please join us as we look to the next 50 years—and beyond—by supporting ACR. Please make a donation today.

All of Audubon Canyon Ranch’s properties are crown jewels, each one unique and special. They are available for location shoots, weddings, corporate retreats, receptions, meetings and special events on a very limited basis. Our primary objective is to maintain the properties as sanctuaries for animals and plants, as well as a nature education center for schoolchildren. Our policies reflect our commitment to ensuring the integrity of these valuable natural resources, and at the same time, offering these one-of-a-kind facilities to guests for their most special events. For more information on this unique opportunity, view this brochure.
