The 59 Veterans Introduces You to Channel Islands National Park!

Channel Islands National Park


Off the coast of southern California, not far from a population of millions, is a beautiful domain: Channel Islands National Park. Consisting of five of the eight Channel Islands in the Pacific Ocean, the national park is rather isolated and relatively undeveloped. It covers 249,561 acres of which 79,019 are owned by the U.S. government. The Nature Conservancy owns and manages 76% of Santa Cruz Island, the largest of the park islands.
Half the park’s area is underwater and contains a unique and rare Mediterranean ecosystem originally settled by the Chumash people. They are home to over 2,000 species of land plants and animals that include the island rushrose, sea-cliff bedstraw, the island fox, bald eagles, orange Garibaldi fish, humpback whales, elephant seals, the California sea lion and giant sea bass. Sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving are a few of the islands’ outdoor activities.
