Our Summer Naturalists weave a web of knowledge.

By Elizabeth Bailey

Each summer, the Catalina Island Conservancy invites four budding conservation professionals to live and work on Catalina Island. The Conservancy’s Summer Naturalists come to us with a wealth of environmental education experience and are available to provide the Island's visitors and residents with natural and cultural history interpretation. You can find them on Crescent Avenue, at the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden, at the Airport in the Sky and in Two Harbors.

We are excited to welcome them to the island! This year, our interns join us from Ohio, Maine, New Jersey and California.

You can visit them during their regular working hours of Friday through Tuesday until the program ends on August 15. Join them for a guided hike up the Hermit Gulch or Garden to Sky trails or participate in one of their informative tours of the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden.

While in Two Harbors, join them for a hike to the Wrigley Marine Science Center every Saturday and stop by the Mobile Nature Station for videos and fun facts about Catalina! For more information about Summer Naturalist programs, contact the Conservancy’s Education Department at 310-510-0954.
