Families in Nature makes it possible for parents and their children to have an enriched experience in Catalina's wildlands. This opportunity is particularly valuable to our community since automobile ownership is restricted on Catalina and access to the Island's wild areas requires access to a vehicle. The program is offered free to Catalina residents and is operated once a month, September to April. Members of the Conservancy's education staff lead each trip, which may include up to 88 participants.

Families in Nature destinations have included Little Harbor, Haypress Recreation Area, Middle Ranch,The Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, and Black Jack campgrounds. During trips, island residents delight in their time outdoors and many report that they are seeing Catalina's wild areas for the first time.
