Did you know that there are 12 Desert Research Institute weather stations on Catalina? Data collected from these stations are shared with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to improve weather predictions for the Island and broader region. This season, there has been more than seven inches of rain on Catalina, right on track with our average rainfall. It's a great - and green - time to visit! Visit the Catalina Island climate stations.


Looking for a way to learn about or experience Catalina and connect with the Conservancy? Check our activity calendar! Here, we list dates for upcoming events such as the Last Friday Lecture Series, Naturalist Trainings and special member or partner events. We are continuously updating event dates, so keep an eye out for something that interests you!
