There are several trails within our canyons that are perfect for all ages and skills. Students will see, touch, smell, and possibly taste a variety of plants on the island. Typical hikes cover the subjects of edible and useful plants, geology, feral animals and scatology. Students will explore methods of colonization by plants and animals, why islands are unique and learn of the Native Islanders history here on Santa Catalina and the Channel Islands. Depending on your students’ abilities, two ecology hike options are available.
Terrestrial Ecology Hike
An aggressive hike used to explore the island’s ecosystems, its geological formation, history, as well as its flora and fauna. Incorporated into the hike are many games and activities used as learning tools.
