AUDUBON CANYON RANCH
Modini Mayacamas Preserves

Learning to Read (the Landscape)

Join ACR Education Specialist Dave Self and start learning how to read the landscape of the Modini Mayacamas. The reading is challenging and is rarely precise, but it’s all around us: in the distribution, size and shape of trees and shrubs; the size and shape of lichen on the rocks; the color of soil; and the location and size of bunchgrasses. Sometimes, if you use careful observation, and apply careful thought and logic, it’ll lead you to discover an old homestead, a Native campsite, a sense of when an old stagecoach route was built or abandoned, or when the last wildfire burned a place.

Tickets: $20 non-member / $15 member or student / FREE for children under age 18. Fees support the preservation, education and conservation science programs of Audubon Canyon Ranch. Learn more about membership.

Meet at the junction of Pine Flat Road and Red Winery Road, (near address marker 4020 Pine Flat Rd, Healdsburg, CA). Look for the white egret sandwich board sign.

Steep, Wild Country, No Facilities, No Pets. Please dress for the weather and bring at least one quart of drinking water. You may also wish to bring a hat, an extra layer, and a snack. Please wear appropriate footwear for hiking on uneven ground.
