About this organization

Since its founding in 1988, the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy (Conservancy) has protected nearly 1600 acres of open space as nature preserves on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Our vision is the creation and management of large blocks of natural open space where visitors may enjoy peaceful solitude, where children and adults can learn about the natural environment, and where locally native plants and animals will exist in a secure environment.

The Conservancy has an obligation to maintain or increase the wildlife habitat value of these preserved lands and to keep them open and available for public use in perpetuity. We encourage strong community involvement and support by connecting people of all ages with the land through nature walks, innovative environmental education programs, and outdoor stewardship volunteer opportunities.
