The Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy offers a diverse selection of activities for Palos Verdes homes owners to enjoy.  Besides nature walks with naturalist, they offer bird walks, nocturnal full moon walk and many volunteer opportunities.  Here are just a few of the opportunities we have in December to join in the fun.
