  • Modini Mayacamas Preserves

Join ACR Education Specialist Dave Self and start learning how to read the landscape of the Modini Mayacamas. The reading is challenging and is rarely precise, but it’s all around us: in the distribution, size and shape of trees and shrubs; the size and shape of lichen on the rocks; the color of soil; and the location and size of bunchgrasses. Sometimes, if you use careful observation, and apply careful thought and logic, it’ll lead you to discover an old homestead, a Native campsite, a sense of when an old stagecoach route was built or abandoned, or when the last wildfire burned a place.
