The Ring Mountain Stewardship Coordinator plans and implements projects at a 400-acre preserve that is renowned for its unique botanical resources and interesting geology. Ring Mountain is home to unparalleled native grasslands containing numerous rare species, including the Tiburon mariposa lily (Calochortus tiburonensis) which is found nowhere else in the world. The mountain’s windswept rock outcrops provide panoramic views of San Francisco Bay and Mount Tamalpais. The Stewardship Coordinator plays a crucial role in managing work on the preserve, including monitoring natural resources, protecting rare species, and providing opportunities for public access and engagement.

 

The stewardship program was initially developed in 2011 thanks to a grant agreement with the Nature Conservancy (TNC). Since 2011, with continued support from TNC, program components have been expanded and adapted to meet the needs of this biologically significant location. The Stewardship Coordinator is a key player in the TNC partnership, and in guiding further program and work plan development.
