EDUCATION
 
The Catalina Island Conservancy’s Education Department serves Catalina’s visitors, businesses, families, students and our community at large. Its aim is to enrich the Catalina experience for all who visit or live here, by teaching about the uniqueness of the Island's ecosystem, which is home to more than sixty plant and animal species found here an nowhere else in the world.

For Visitors — For those planning a visit to Catalina Island and want to read more about experiences in the wildlands, at the Conservancy's Nature Center or Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden, please click here: VISIT.

Services to Avalon School Children — The Conservancy's Education Department reaches all of Avalon’s student population, providing them with opportunities to engage with the natural wonders of Catalina and providing them with accurate information and engaging nature based experiences.
The Education Department also serves as a conduit between the Conservancy’s other departments and the public. Key  Conservancy concepts are embedded into all Education programs, with the overarching goals of providing memorable Island experiences, enhancing Ecoliteracy and providing meaningful connections to its audience and the Conservancy at a social scale.

The Conservancy provides formal, classroom lessons and non-formal outdoor experiences designed to deliver nature-based engagement and experiential learning. Through this work, students connect to, and develop an appreciation and respect for the natural and cultural resources managed by the Conservancy on their Island home. The Conservancy endeavors to prepare students of all ages to be future stewards of the Island and indeed, the world.
