Promoting a conservation ethic in people of all ages is central to our mission of Conservation in Action. Audubon Canyon Ranch offers exploration and learning opportunities for nature enthusiasts of all ages on three of its preserves: the Martin Griffin Preserve, the Bouverie Preserve and the Modini Mayacamas Preserves.

Join us on the preserves to explore seasonal changes, observe nesting birds and migrating newts, learn about native peoples' use of the land, hike past wildflower meadows and through redwood groves. Visitation is limited on all three preserves in order to ensure that human impact is kept in balance with land and habitat preservation goals.

Learning to Read (the Landscape)

Audubon Canyon Ranch Event Calendar


Learning to Read (the Landscape)

Jan 20 2018 - 9:00am to 2:00pm
Modini Mayacamas Preserves

Join ACR Education Specialist Dave Self and start learning how to read the landscape of the Modini Mayacamas. The reading is challenging and is rarely precise, but it’s all around us: in the distribution, size and shape of trees and shrubs; the size and shape of lichen on the rocks; the color of soil; and the location and size of bunchgrasses. Sometimes, if you use careful observation, and apply careful thought and logic, it’ll lead you to discover an old homestead, a Native campsite, a sense of when an old stagecoach route was built or abandoned, or when the last wildfire burned a place.
