Academic Level:
High School Students

The Conservation Science Intensive is a 5-day, 4-night residential program, based out of Audubon Canyon Ranch's Martin Griffin Preserve on Bolinas Lagoon and includes day trips to some of ACR's other preserves and local protected lands. While learning and working together, participants explore topics including natural history, conservation, leadership, outdoor skills, biological illustration, research design and ethics, nature writing, equity in science and women in leadership. This collaborative expeditionary program challenges participants - individually and collectively - physically, creatively, and intellectually, as they work with and learn from ACR's highly-skilled women conservation biologists, ecologists, educators and guest artists, writers, and musicians.

CSI is a program of Audubon Canyon Ranch. It is provided free of charge to program participants and is made possible thanks to the donations from caring individuals, foundations and businesses.
