Conservation Talk: Ecology and Conservation of the Gulf of the Farallones

Audubon Canyon Ranch Event Calendar


Conservation Talk: Ecology and Conservation of the Gulf of the Farallones

Jul 1 2017 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Martin Griffin Preserve

The Gulf of the Farallones lies within an "Eastern Boundary Current System," one of five such current systems around the world, where cold ocean currents and other environmental factors lead to high ocean productivity; an estimated 85-95% of the world's seafood originates from these five systems. Peter's talk will cover the ecology and conservation of the Gulf's marine vertebrates, from birds to pinnipeds, to whales to sharks. We will not only learn about some of the Gulf's keystone species, but will look in on the excellent research that has been undertaken in the Gulf and the conservation and management actions that have resulted.

Peter Pyle has worked as an ornithologist and marine biologist throughout the Pacific. During the 1980-2000's much of his research was conducted on birds and white sharks at the Farallon Islands, California and he is now an identification specialist and consultant for the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary's Beach Watch program. He is a Research Associate both at the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, and the B.P. Bishop Museum, Honolulu. To date he has authored over 170 papers in scientific journals and two books, and has described a new species of shearwater (Puffinus bryani) and named it after his grandfather, Edwin Bryan. Peter currently works as a staff biologist for the Institute for Bird Populations in Point Reyes Station.

Tickets: $20 non-member / $15 member or student / FREE for children under age 18. Fees support the preservation, education and conservation science programs of Audubon Canyon Ranch.

Creepy Crawlies & Insect Safari - CANCELLED

Creepy Crawlies & Insect Safari - CANCELLED

Jul 8 2017 - 11:00am to 4:00pm
Martin Griffin Preserve

This event has been cancelled.

“Insect Literacy in a World that’s Mostly Repulsed by Anything with More than Four Legs”

It is true that insects comprise at least 90% of the animal forms on Earth. That’s 6-10 million species. It is also true that arachnophobia is the #1 phobia in the United States. How, ever, will humanity survive!? Start by finding out that every creepy crawly has a story that it wants to tell. What do I eat? Where do I live? What do I have to do with the price of coffee? Eddie Dunbar will demystify our friend, the insect and insect allies, and put us all onto a path of healing through the amazing world of insects.

Eddie Dunbar is Founder and President of the Insect Sciences Museum of California, an Oakland-based non-profit, where he leads a citizen-based survey of San Francisco Bay Area insects. Dunbar is writing “Insects of the San Francisco Bay Area” (due in 2017), which gets residents involved in observing, photographing and conducting projects that involve local insects. Dunbar holds a B.S. in Business Management and an MBA with emphasis in Technology, but began studies at the University of California, Berkeley Entomology. He is is author of "Lake Merritt and Greater Oakland Insects" (revised 2013), “Insects of Wente Scout Reservation and Mendocino County” (1998) and an "Insects of the San Francisco Bay Area" (1997) website published by the College of Natural Resources at the University of California, Berkeley.

Insects are separated by time and space. Insect Safari goers will explore the insects that inhabit the varied spaces on the Preserve. They will get up close and personal using the same tools that real entomologists use. Nets, magnifying loupes, forceps and vials will be used to capture, observe and release insects of Audubon Canyon Ranch. The insect safari will cover what insects are, why they are so successful and what roles insects play in the ecology. Students debrief, sharing the insects they have discovered, where the insects were found, and what they were doing. If resources permit, specimens may be viewed under a microscopy system.

Conservation Talk: 11:00am-12:30pm

Insect Safari: 1:00- 4:00pm

Tickets: $20 non-member / $15 member or student / FREE for children under age 18. Fees support the preservation, education and conservation science programs of Audubon Canyon Ranch. Learn more about membership.

What Makes Spiders So Amazing

Audubon Canyon Ranch Event Calendar


What Makes Spiders So Amazing

Jul 22 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Safari West

Join us at Safari West where ACR Director of Education Gwen Heistand will be the feautured "after dinner" speaker giving an engaging talk on spiders. Reservations required, see below for details.

What Makes Spiders So Amazing … or …Tales from a Recovered Arachnophobe

What if YOU could hear with your ankles, squeeze seven kinds of silk from millions of tiny spigots in your abdomen, ate your mate after sex – or conversely evolved amazing strategies to avoid becoming nuptial fodder, were able to shed your skin to get smaller, had to carry a hundred or so of your progeny around on your back after they were born, or were able to release a balloon from your hind end and sail 30,000 feet above the earth?

Gwen Heistand has been the resident Biologist at Audubon Canyon Ranch’s Martin Griffin Preserve on the edge of Bolinas Lagoon since 2002 and Director of Education since 2015. She teaches classes in all aspects of Natural History – from parasites and slime molds to bird song and mammal tracks. Her love of marine biology, especially wee things that live in water, propelled her out of the business world and back to graduate school. Living and working on the same thousand acres for the last 14 years, Gwen’s heart has expanded to embrace our terrestrial neighbors as well … including a severe crush on spiders (the subject of most of her childhood nightmares). Gwen has a Master’s Degree in Environmental Science & Management / Applied Ecology from UC Santa Barbara. Her graduate work focused on cumulative impact assessment in coastal wetland watersheds.

To attend, call Safari West and make dinner reservations. When calling, let the staff know you are coming for the speaker that night (normally you have to have booked an overnight stay to have dinner and hear the speaker).  To contact Safari West, click here.
