ACR’s new Conservation Science Intensive (CSI) combines our commitment to Conservation in Action, our extraordinary female staff, and our 5,000 acres of permanently protected wildland, to create a summer program designed to inspire and mentor tomorrow’s female conservationists. The program was brought to fruition in 2016 by an unprecedented cross-program team that included all of ACR’s female conservation, stewardship, and education staff, with seed money provided by Impact100 Sonoma.
For the 2017 program, a diverse group of young women, ages 16 & 17, will visit each of ACR’s four preserves to learn from and work with each of the team members, while developing skills in natural history, fire ecology, radio telemetry, invasive species management, vegetation assessment, and marine ecology - all while building confidence and developing leadership skills.
Summer 2017 Program Dates: June 19 - 23, 2017
Application forms and more information will be available here in late 2016.
