    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.


    These parks represent one of the most outstanding examples of ecosystems supported by the Mediterranean climate region and each contain a rich and varied array of natural and cultural resources. The parks, together with their partners, are dedicated to understanding and preserving the region’s unique resources through science and education. Learn more about specific topics by exploring the links on the left or visit the park and protected pages to discover the particular resources found at each of these special places.
