Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR), a North Bay leader in conservation science, habitat protection and restoration and nature education, will open its Martin Griffin Preserve for a limited number of days this holiday season for visitors to enjoy the 1,000-acre preserve and browse in its nature-inspired book and gift store.
During the winter months, there is still plenty for visitors to do at Martin Griffin Preserve. Hiking trails will be open to explore a variety of grasslands and coastal scrub, chaparral, streams, ponds and freshwater marsh habitats. The winter rains bring fascinating slide molds and mosses, banana slugs, spiders, brown pelicans and more out into the open.
Martin Griffin Preserve will be open Monday to Friday, now through December 7 from 10a.m. to 4p.m. and then Mondays and Wednesday from December 10 to December 19 from 10a.m. to 4p.m.
