One of the unique characteristics of the South Coast Chapter area is its geological and biological links to the Channel Islands. Indeed, some of the rare plants of the Palos Verdes Peninsula only occur in one other spot – the Channel Islands.


Although much of the area encompassed by our chapter boundaries has been urbanized, our area also includes the only remaining segment of coastal sage scrub between the Santa Monica Mountains and Orange County. The protection and preservation of native habitat has been a primary focus of our chapter over the years.
