Anacapa Island

CIR works with the Channel Islands National Park on an important and exciting habitat restoration project on Anacapa Island. We work with adults and school groups on single-day trips to restore habitat invaded by non-native iceplant that threatens the island's sea bird nesting habitat and native plant communities. When you volunteer on Anacapa, you will be signed up as a National Park Service Volunteer. Volunteers remove iceplant, grow plants in the island nursery, collect seed and plant native species. We typically depart around 8:00 AM, and we arrive back on the mainland around 5:00 PM. Volunteers bring their own lunch, snacks and water, and we supply the rest!
