ACR's CSI 2016: Conservation Science Intensive for young women, ages 15-17, will occur June 20-24, 2016.

This program will bring together 12 exceptional young women, ages 15 to 17, to work with and learn from ACR’s highly-skilled female conservation biologists, ecologists, and educators at ACR’s Bouverie Preserve in Glen Ellen, Modini Mayacamas Preserves near Healdsburg, Cypress Grove Research Center on Tomales Bay, and the Martin Griffin Preserve on Bolinas Lagoon.




Over the course of 5 consecutive days, participants will develop an understanding of conservation practices and deepen their appreciation of the complexity and interconnectedness of natural systems.

Participants will be chosen based on the strength of their applications and the written recommendations of teachers. ACR is able to offer this program for a fee of $50 per participant. The remaining program cost of $1,600 per participant is supported by a generous grant from Sonoma Impact 100.
