CONSERVANCY EVENTS
 
PLEASE NOTE RECENT UPDATES IN THE EVENTS CALENDAR WHICH INCLUDE ONLINE OPPORTUNITIES.


The Catalina Island Conservancy hosts events digitally, on the Island and the Mainland for Catalina Island enthusiasts as well as Conservancy supporters, members and donors.  We are in the process of transitioning many events and resources into online formats to make them safely accessible to all.  Our Annual Conservancy Ball  and the Annual Art Show are the Conservancy's two biggest fundraisers. The Conservancy also hosts various Member events and hikes, as well as Education events including our Last Friday Lecture Series and Naturalist Trainings, both available online!  And if you're looking for a beach clean-up activity or would like to lend your green thumb in the Native Plant nursery, stay tuned to hear about future volunteer opportunities just for you! 

The Conservancy is also fortunate to partner with organizations on events throughout the year that support the Island and the Conservancy's work.  See our event calendar below for more information on our partnerships, Island races and more opportunties to explore and celebrate the Island.
