A leader in environmental education and community outreach since 1964, our standards-based programs get students into nature or bring nature to the students, and offer rigorous scientific learning and research opportunities.

RCDSMM partners with public and private landowners to restore native habitat, to prevent the spread of invasive species, and to protect and create green space and migration corridors for sensitive wildlife throughout the Santa Monica Mountains.

The first step toward protecting our resources is understanding them. Our biologists work with public and private entities, citizen scientists, students, and volunteers of all ages to study sensitive species, native habitats, streams and lagoons.

Good land stewardship is essential to a healthy environment. We help landowners assess and plan low impact projects, convert lawns to thriving native landscapes, reduce erosion, combat invasive species, and save water.
