A Vacation that Makes a Difference

The Historic Hermosa Hotel and Catalina Island Vaction Rentals has partnered with the Conservancy to offer you great volunteer vacation packages. Your stay can be customized to meet you and your groups level of ability and interest.
Join Catalina Island Vacation Rentals and the Catalina Island Conservancy for a unique Catalina Volunteer Vacation. Help preserve the rare native plants and animals on Santa Catalina Island, just twenty-two miles off the coast of Southern California. During your stay on our island, you will explore and experience Catalina like never before, all while making a difference in its preservation during the day and enjoying the comforts
of home at night. Volunteer vacations can range from as few as two days to a week or longer. A sample itinerary might include a Thursday morning at the Ackerman Native Plant Nursery being trained in the horticulture and ecology of Catalina's varied flora and a Saturday morning assisting with the Windward Beach Clean-Up, which occurs bi-monthly. You may also have the rare opportunity to become trained as a Catalina Island Conservancy Naturalist! While staying with Catalina Island Vacation Rentals for your volunteer vacation, you will receive an exclusive volunteer rate along with a special thank you gift.
