Audubon Canyon Ranch provides award-winning day-long and overnight school programs at the Martin Griffin Preserve.  Students from the Bay Area learn education-based, nature experience guided by trained docents.  Conservation in Action means that we are committed to catalyzing and inspiring in children the desire to understand, protect and care for the land. 

ACR’s award winning nature education field trips provide students with a three-hour, docent-led nature hike, a pre-visit, in-class orientation, and a set of standards-based resources for teachers to develop classroom activities related to the nature-hike content. This program is for children in grades three, four, and five, and cultivates ecological literacy and promotes stewardship of the earth through hands-on, inquiry-based nature education. Docent-led, small group instruction allows for very intimate and personal connections to ACR’s preserves.
