Ranch Guides Wanted!
Become a Ranch Guide and share the knowledge and appreciation of nature with our Bay Area community during the awe-inspiring heron and egret nesting season. Ranch Guides provide information to public visitors about the preserve and its many unique natural features, during the public season, mid-March through mid-July.
Training starts January 19, 2008. The seven Saturday training program is designed to give Ranch Guides a larger understanding of Bolinas Lagoon Preserve's nesting colony of herons and egrets, Audubon Canyon Ranch history, the preserve’s many species of water, shore, and land birds, plants, mammals, pond life, and tips for working with the public. No prior training or skills are needed. The training cost of $25 is to cover materials fees. Partial scholarships available.
Training dates: January 19, 26; February 2, 9, 16, 23; March 8, 15.
Public Season runs mid-March to mid-July every year. This year our opening day is March 15th.
Commitment: Graduates of the Ranch Guide training commit to four weekend or holiday days of their choice per year, during the public season of mid-March to mid-July.
