One of the most amazing things about living in Palos Verdes, is having the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy practically as your backyard. Since being founded in 1988, over the last 30 years it has preserved over 1,600 acres of land in the Palos Verdes area.
Besides land preservations the PVPLC also works to restore and improve the natural wildlife habitat in order to protect threatened species such as the California gnatcatcher and Palos Verdes blue butterfly. Working in unison with the 4 cities in the area: Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, and San Pedro, the conservation has been endorsed by both the public and private sector, and provides volunteer opportunities residents all over the area.
In addition to land preservation, the conservancy provides astounding educational and recreational to both adults and children alike. The community is connected and exposed to the beauty of nature both through public activities and school programs. Plus, there are not one, but two nature centers on site.
Lastly, the PVPLC is comprised of over 40 miles of trails that can be used for walking, hiking, horseback riding, and biking. Volunteer geologists, and naturalists lead monthly guided nature walks, and the two nature centres located at White Point Nature Preserve and George F Canyon Nature preserve welcome thousands of visitors every year.
The conservancy’s vision is to preserve and provide a space for people to enjoy bliss, solitude, and education with nothing but raw nature surrounding you. So head on down to one of the nature centers or visit their website to learn more about trails, nature walks, and volunteer opportunities.
