Latest Project Updates

In late July, mountain lion P14, a young male we've been tracking since January, was killed in Mendocino County after a depredation permit was issued by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW). Domestic animal predation has become the biggest conservation challenge for our Living with Lions program.
Several months ago, Prescribed Fire Specialist Jared Childress had the pleasure to lead a small group of basket weavers from the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria (FIGR) to the pygmy redwoods at Bouverie Preserve. They were looking for young California hazelnut shoots.
With a keen eye toward climate change and potential impacts on preserve ecology and infrastructure, ACR contracted with Laurel Collins of Watershed Services and Jason Pearson of Lotic Environmental Services to conduct a preliminary geomorphic assessment of the four watersheds in the Martin Griffin Preserve (MGP).

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