Adubon Canyon Ranch, Stinson Beach

Wildlife Area · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) is an environmental non-profit which protects 5,000 acres in Marin and Sonoma Counties. ACR's Preserves include the Cypress Grove Research Center on Tomales Bay, the 535-acre Bouverie Preserve in Sonoma’s Valley of the Moon near Glen Ellen and the 1,000-acre Martin Griffin Preserve (formerly known as the Bolinas Lagoon Preserve) near Stinson Beach, which is home to one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most significant and most studied Great Egret and Great Blue Heron nesting sites, and the Modini Mayacamas Preserves in Alexander Valley.

ACR's programs are made possible thanks to the contribution of thousands of hours of volunteer service, and donations from caring individuals, foundations and businesses.
