  1. Volunteer Vacation on Catalina Island
    If you want to take a day-trip to beautiful Catalina Island just off the Southern California coastline, you should consider being there on a Thursday morning when there’s an excellent opportunity to volunteer at the James H. Ackerman Native Plant Nursery in the interior of the island. Free transportation to the nursery is available from Avalon, Catalina’s main city, at 7:30 a.m. every Thursday year-round. Typical projects include seed germination, seed collection, plant propagation, weeding, light construction and nursery maintenance, and last until noon.
    Another option allows volunteers to spend three days and two nights on the island helping to preserve the ecological wonder of the island. The trip includes lodging at the Hermosa Hotel as well as round-trip boat transportation from Avalon and boxed lunches for working days. Volunteers on this trip are expected to arrive on Wednesday ready to work, volunteer Thursday, and spend Friday enjoying the island. The trip fees are $249.
    Volunteers who commit to spending a larger portion of time on the island have the opportunity to clean beaches, conduct trail maintenance and explore Avalon. Long-term opportunities are made available on the Catalina Island Conservancy’s
