CIR restores habitat in sensitive and unique natural areas in the Channel Islands National Park and adjacent mainland. We help protect rare and/or endangered native plant and animal species by restoring the natural habitat they depend on for survival.
Channel Islands Restoration protects rare and endangered plants and animals by restoring habitat in sensitive and unique natural areas on the California Channel Islands and adjacent mainland. We educate a variety of groups about the value of native habitat and how to protect it. We recruit volunteers and identify and develop public and private funding sources for habitat restoration programs. We create collaborative relationships within the environmental community. CIR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Where We Work
What We Do
We provide a hands-on volunteer experience to young people and the general public in some of the most unique natural areas in California. On multi-day trips to the Channel Islands, volunteers gain a lasting impression of the value of native habitat and the science of habitat restoration. As part of these trips, volunteers view a PowerPoint presentation about the Channel Islands, including natural history, human history and efforts to protect the islands.
