One of the primary goals of the Catalina Island Conservancy is to connect people to the land and sea through nature-based recreational opportunities. In 2014 the Conservancy engaged with more people than ever. For hikers few areas in Southern California feature the diversity that Catalina has to offer. The Island offers more than 200 miles of trails which draw everyone from the casual day hiker to experienced trekkers looking to tackle the Trans-Catalina Trail. Camping continues to be a popular pastime on Catalina as well with numerous camping opportunities available on Conservancy land. The Conservancy also partners with several youth camps which are often the first opportunity that young people have to see and experience the unique beauty of Catalina Island. Our Jeep Eco Tours continue to be one of the most popular activities on the Island. In 2014 ridership increased by 20 over 2013.
