Tejon Ranch Conservancy

At 270,000 acres, Tejon Ranch Conservancy stewards the largest contiguous private property in California. Straddling the Tehachapi Mountains, it lies at the convergence of four of California’s ten major ecological regions. Tejon Ranch provides the only corridor for wildlife movements between vast tracts of protected lands. 

Aspiring naturalists can enroll in the 40 hour Tejon Ranch Conservancy class that combines classroom and field experiences focused on ecology, communication, and community service. The class will provide hands-on instruction and exposure to real world environmental projects designed to inspire adults to become active citizen scientists and enhance their personal connection with the natural world. Upon completing certification requirements, participants are eligible for four academic credits through UC Davis Extension for an additional nominal fee.

Next course schedule: TBA
