Promoting a conservation ethic in people of all ages is central to our mission of Conservation in Action. Audubon Canyon Ranch offers exploration and learning opportunities for nature enthusiasts of all ages on three of its preserves: the Martin Griffin Preserve, the Bouverie Preserve and the Modini Mayacamas Preserves.

Join us on the preserves to explore seasonal changes, observe nesting birds and migrating newts, learn about native peoples' use of the land, hike past wildflower meadows and through redwood groves. Visitation is limited on all three preserves in order to ensure that human impact is kept in balance with land and habitat preservation goals.

Wildflower Tour on the Modini Mayacamas *Cancelled*

Feb 23 2019 - 9:00am to 3:00pm
Modini Preserve

This event has been cancelled - we apologize for any inconvenience.

The Modini Mayacamas area is one of the wildflower hotspots in Sonoma County. We'll stop at several wildflower patches along Pine Flat Road, and then we’ll hike (2-3 miles total) to a few other wildflower spots on the Preserves that will also include some great views. You'll also learn about the ecology of the wildflowers, their pollinators, and their uses by wildlife and people. A different set of wildflowers blooms each month, so join us for several of these wildflower adventures.

The Modini Mayacamas Preserves This private nature sanctuary, owned and managed by Audubon Canyon Ranch, has a range of different public access opportunities. Pine Flat Road, a public county road with pullouts, meanders through the preserve, allowing visitors to enjoy the views and birdwatching from roadside pullouts anytime without appointment. Please drive very cautiously, this is a one lane winding road with very limited sight lines.
