At a Glance

Channel Islands National Park consists of five of California's eight Channel Islands. Nicknamed “North America's Galapagos,” approximately 150 plants and animals live on these islands and nowhere else on the planet. This lecture introduces participants to the extinct pygmy mammoth, the adorable Channel Islands fox, the beautiful Santa Rosa Island Torrey pine, the islands' uses as ranches, vineyards, big game hunting parks and their important contribution to our better understanding of how and when people first arrived to North America.
