Wandering Zen – The Return to Catalina



There is no better way to end a summer here in southern California than with a trek to Catalina.  This gem is so close but takes you so far away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland!  It is especially great when you are invited to spend the weekend with incredible friends on their incredible sailboat.  This time around we had the opportunity to spend our time on the less traveled and toured east end of the island.  It was a treat.  In this episode we tell some tales of the trails, enjoy some water activities, and take you on a tour of the beautiful Catalina Island.

The Catalina Island Conservancy was founded in 1972 as a non-profit organization, the Catalina Island Conservancy is one of the oldest private land trusts in Southern California. It protects 88 percent of Catalina Island, including more than 62 miles of unspoiled beaches and secluded coves—the longest publicly accessible stretch of undeveloped coastline left in Southern California. Catalina Island is home to more than 60 plant, animal and insect species found nowhere else in the world. It is visited by more than one million people annually. More than sixty thousand school children each year visit camps on Conservancy lands.

The Conservancy is a leader in conservation programs that protect and restore endangered species and threatened habitats. It conducts educational outreach through two nature centers, its Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden and guided experiences in the Island’s rugged interior. 

The Conservancy believes that effective conservation in the 21st century is by people for people, and on Catalina Island tests solutions to environmental challenges here, and across our Island Earth.
