Programs: Created in 1962 to protect a major Northern California Heronry, ACR has grown to include three diverse preserves -- 2,000 acres of tideflats, marshlands, coastal prairie, redwood groves and other fragile wildlife habitats. ACR's Education Programs provide more than 6,000 schoolchildren each year with in-class natural history presentations and on-site, docent-led visits to ACR preserves, and integrated curricular materials for teachers at no charge to the schools or the students. Each year, almost 100 new adult Docent and Ranch Guide volunteers are trained to interpret the natural history of ACR's Preserves to visiting schoolchildren and families. Nearly 7,000 visitors enjoy nature firsthand at the Preserves each year. ACR's Conservation Science and Habitat Protection (CSHP) Program supports the preservation and management of the natural resources of ACR sanctuaries, and contributes to local conservation efforts and the international body of scientific literature.

Audubon Canyon Ranch protects the natural resources of its sanctuaries while fostering an understanding and appreciation of these environments. We educate children and adults, promote ecological literacy that is grounded in direct experience, and conduct research and restoration that advances conservation science.ACR''s vision is for all adults and children to feel a strong and continuing connection with the wonder and beauty of the natural world. We seek to inspire this connection through our preservation, education, and research programs.
