AUDUBON CANYON RANCHModini Mayacamas Preserves
Acorns
Acorns are a major food for deer, jays and many other animals, and they were extremely important food for Native cultures. (Our guide Dave Self likes to eat them too, especially as acorn-bread stuffing in turkey). We’ll seek out various oaks (we have 9 species) to get a look at their acorns, assess their acorn crops, and to observe associated wildlife. You’ll learn about oaks, acorns, wildlife the use acorns, oak ecology and Native Management
$20 per person suggested donation. Contributions support the preservation, education and conservation science programs of Audubon Canyon Ranch. All donations are greatly appreciated!

The Modini Mayacamas Preserves This private nature sanctuary, owned and managed by Audubon Canyon Ranch, has a range of different public access opportunities. Pine Flat Road, a public county road with pullouts, meanders through the preserve, allowing visitors to enjoy the views and birdwatching from roadside pullouts anytime without appointment. Please drive very cautiously, this is a one lane winding road with very limited sight lines.
