Become a Land Caretaker with PVPLC

Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy is committed to preserving undeveloped land for the education and enjoyment of everyone. During these uncertain times, the adopt-a-plot program allows volunteers to complete or contribute to habitat restoration projects independently and on your own schedule under their guidance. Each location offers a different experience. Volunteers can consider the options and select the one that meets your interests. They are asking volunteers commit to this program for at least one year to ensure that new plants survive the arid, dry conditions. You only need to help at a minimum of 1x per month but, biweekly and weekly stewardship visits are encouraged. To schedule your initial site visit, please email Megan Wolff at mwolff@pvplc.org or give her a call at 310-541-7613 x 208.
