At Home on ACR Preserves: A Video of Wildlife Photos taken by Trailcams

Great Egrets nesting at the Martin Griffin Preserve


ACR is born, as told by Founder Marty Griffin

Driven by a childhood memory, Marty Griffin tells how he and other local conservationists fought to save hundreds of acres of native habitat and a threatened colony of egrets from a massive development plan.

A nature sanctuary—and the land conservation and environmental education organization now called Audubon Canyon Ranch—is born.

Wildlife habitat is restored, thanks to massive Giacomini Wetlands restoration project near Point Reyes National Seashore
