A Benefit for Audubon Canyon Ranch and Marin Audubon Society
Our 2013 BBQ will be held again in the orchard at Volunteer Canyon. In addition to supporting the education and conservation programs of Audubon Canyon Ranch and Marin Audubon Society, the event is an opportunity to enjoy friends and family in a natural wildlife preserve usually closed to the public. Hike to the heron nest site at the Martin Griffin Preserve, the canyon to the north, and/or take a in guided nature walk geared especially for children. Click here for more information on the nesting sites at ACR’s Martin Griffin Preserve.
The menu includes lemon rosemary barbecued chicken or vegetarian quiche, green salad, home-style beans, local breads, coffee and tea, ice cream. Wine, beer, and soft drinks are available.
We encourage you to “be green” and bring your own non-throw-away utensils/dishes/ cups and napkins.
