The ACR Nature Guide class of 2017 includes 14 graduates with ages ranging from 7 years-old through retirement. Our newest volunteers received 8 weeks of training, learning about plants, birds, reptiles, pond critters, nature connection, interpretation, and more! These folks will now go on to share their knowledge and love for nature with the public at the Martin Griffin Preserve.

The Nature Guide program (previously called Ranch Guides) has existed since 1986 and plays an important role in introducing visitors to the range of hiking and learning opportunities at Martin Griffin Preserve.

Join us through spring and summer for engaging Conservation Talks by regional leaders, Nature Connection family fun, and interpretive talks. Open Saturdays through July 29, gate​s open 10am-4pm, Nature Guide-led interpretative talks/guided walks at 11:30am and 2:30pm.
