Parks & Protected Areas
Connected by similar geography, natural and cultural resources, and resource protection challenges, the Coastal Southern California national parks:
- Cabrillo National Monument
- Channel Islands National Park
- Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
The parks work in collaboration to preserve the natural and cultural resources of the Mediterranean climate region. This collaboration includes the Mediterranean Coast Network Inventory and Monitoring (MEDN I&M) Program, and the Southern California Research Learning Center (SCRLC).
The parks are also fortunate to have the support of numerous partner organizations.
