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.

  • Beautiful natural enviroment that hosts a diverse array of animal and plant life. Egrets nest in trees during certain seasons, and are a sight to see. The property has nature trails to walk, including marsh walkways that allow you to look closely into the water and observe newts in their natural habbitat. Very educational, friendly staff, and entertaining for everyone. 5/5 would Definitely recommend a stop here on any explorer-fueled adventure!
  • went here on a field trip when i was younger and have loved it ever since, amazing views, nice trails, and brought my family and friends to come experience it as well. it might be a little bit of a drive but the views all the way through are totally worth it, and if you have kids the newt catching is really fun haha
