Island Ecology

Geology and Mini Hike

Students will be introduced to geological forces and how they helped to create Catalina Island.

Island Ecology Hike

This longer hike will give students an opportunity to explore the island and gain an appreciation of the environment. Hiking exposes students to unique island environments and allows them to learn about, as well as touch and see, the many plants, animals and insects that inhabit Catalina. The lifestyles of the Native Islanders that resided on Catalina will also be a topic of discussion.

Day Trip (Five day groups only)

Five day groups can kayak and hike to explore an adjacent part of the island. During this day-long excursion, the group will eat a picnic lunch as well as snorkel or tide pool in this new area before returning for dinner at Cherry Cove.
