Audubon Canyon Ranch protects our natural and human communities through land preservation, nature education, and conservation science.

Features and News

Highlights of the fall 2016 edition of the ACR Bulletin include: mentoring women conservationists, the secret lives of herons, mountain lion project hits its stride and a look at the herring-waterbird connection...take a look!

 
During winter, over 35,000 waterbirds, along with tens of thousands of shorebirds and gulls, pack the surface waters of Tomales Bay. Beneath the surface, tens of millions of Pacific herring (Clupea pallasii) also enter the bay each winter, to spawn in the vast, subtidal meadows of eelgrass. These events precipitate spectacular waterbird feeding frenzies.
 
The ACR Mountain Lion Project advanced its research and education goals with its capture and GPS-colllaring of an adult female lion in the Sonoma Valley in early October.
