EDUCATION

How does a child learn best? Memorization of math tables, navigating an iPad, or could it possibly be just the simple task of looking at a square foot of ground in a place as vast and natural as the Tejon Ranch? There is so much to see, to smell, to feel, and ultimately to learn from that tiny patch of earth…and in simply doing something like this, can a child be inspired, can a child imagine their future? We think so and hope you do as well. 

 

Many of the young people the Tejon Ranch Conservancy brings to these 240,000 conserved acres through TEJON TEACHES have never been in the wild, never hiked a hillside, never spotted an eagle, let alone a condor. But it’s not just exposure to nature that we strive to deliver. TEJON TEACHES gives local schools and teachers unique tools and experiences that supplement their curriculum and improve learning.  

Please join us in this outstanding opportunity to use the vast protected natural resources of this ecologically important and iconic landscape to help inspire the minds of the future and give a child a chance to learn. 

SCIENCE

Maintaining a robust Science Program is vital to the Conservancy’s overall mission. Whether it be riparian habitat enhancement as part of grazing management activities or one of many Conservancy-facilitated research projects conducted by regional institutional partners, scientific understanding is a core value of the Conservancy. Donations in support of the Conservancy’s Science Program are essential, ensuring the Ranch’s many incredible natural resources are not only known, but sustainably managed for the benefit of future generations.

PUBLIC ACCESS

In the coming year we will be continuing to expand our public access program by leading multiple community and group hikes, school outings, internships and naturalist trainings. We are very excited to soon launch an important partnership with California State University Bakersfield. This partnership provides students with an introduction to the region’s natural resources and environmentally related career opportunities. We look forward to expanding the horizons of these future leaders. 

Your support will help the Conservancy expand public access and education programs and help reach even more students and community members in 2019.
