About the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy

The mission of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy (PVPLC) is to "preserve land and restore habitat for the education and enjoyment of all." Since its founding in 1988, the Conservancy has successfully preserved 1,600 acres of open space on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This includes working with the four cities where these lands are located: Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, and San Pedro (City of Los Angeles).

Conservation and Education:

  • The Conservancy is dedicated to preserving undeveloped land as open space for historical, educational, ecological, recreational, and scenic purposes.
  • They manage large blocks of natural open space, providing peaceful solitude, educational opportunities, and thriving habitats for native plants and animals.
  • Over 4,000 students annually participate in conservation education programs tied to California state science curriculum standards, including many from Title I schools.
  • Public and school-based programming helps connect the community to these special landscapes.

Recreational Opportunities:

  • The nature preserves on the Palos Verdes Peninsula host more than 42 miles of trails, offering activities such as hiking, horseback riding, and biking.
  • The Conservancy enhances visitor experiences with well-maintained trails, key access portals, trail guides, and wayfinding signage.
  • Monthly guided nature walks are led by volunteer naturalists, historians, and geologists.

Stewardship and Habitat Restoration:

  • With the help of hundreds of volunteers year-round, PVPLC's stewardship staff and crew restore native habitats to support rare and threatened species such as the California gnatcatcher and the Palos Verdes blue butterfly.
