We are shocked, saddened, and horrified by the news of the Conception and the people aboard this past Labor Day. This is a terrible blow to the Island community and our thoughts are with the friends and families who lost their loved ones.


Channel Islands Restoration is a 501c3 non-profit contractor (Lic #1056865) that works to restore habitat on the Channel Islands and adjacent mainland through invasive plant management, native plant propagation, and native plant installation. We work to promote environmental education on the Central Coast through lectures, service trips, and habitat restoration volunteer opportunities. We conduct research and monitoring programs to identify and inform further habitat restoration efforts.
