Natural History of Santa Cruz Island

Join us on this rare opportunity to explore the unique flora and fauna of California’s Channel Islands, home to species of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth. Twenty-five miles off the coast of southern California lies Santa Cruz Island, the largest of California’s eight Channel Islands. More than 1,000 species of plants and animals inhabit the island’s high peaks, deep canyons, pastoral valleys and 77 miles of dramatic coastline. Once on the brink of ecological collapse, Santa Cruz Island now offers visitors a glimpse of what southern California used to be like hundreds of years ago.
