Promoting access, appreciation and understanding of the natural bounty of the Ranch is a fundamental goal of FFRP. Educational, docent-led walks on the history, geography, flora and fauna of the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve are offered throughout the year. Each spring, FFRP puts on a wildflower show, featuring hundreds of local flowers collected by volunteer botanists and wildflower enthusiasts. In addition, FFRP collaborates with local schools to develop and offer educational programs focused on the Ranch, including planting and growing seeds of native plants and trees. See the FFRP calendar for a complete schedule of educational walks and events.
School related field trip walks are available through our docent program. These walks can be tied to earth science curriculum and meet the California Life Science Standards, or even complement local arts programs. We also offer a stewardship program for students. On stewardship walks, a group of trained docents introduce students to the flora, fauna, and geography of the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. Contact FFRP for information.
