The mild climate of the southern coast of California makes it ideal for year round environmental education. Coastal sage scrub, oak woodland hills, sycamore filled canyons, and fine sandy beaches offer a variety of ecosystems to explore. These sites are within one or two hours from urban Los Angeles.
