Dear Friends All of us who live, work in or just visit the Peninsula have the opportunity to enjoy its beautiful natural landscapes. We are so fortunate to be within a short distance of such breathtaking views and accessible trails. The donors profiled in this annual report exemplify the deep love and admiration for the Peninsula that inspires them and others to take personal responsibility for the preservation and care of our natural lands by working with the Conservancy. We are grateful for the support of each of the 1275 persons listed in this publication who has allowed us to accomplish so much during the past year. The establishment of the Conservancy’s first endowment, the preservation of 58 acres of land in Malaga Canyon and the dedication of increased resources for trails in the nature preserve are just a few of the highlights that made this year especially successful. Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to another vigorous year.

To protect the scenic, natural and diverse landscapes we know and love for future generations, we must continue our persistent land restoration work. Thanks to an estate gift to the Conservancy left by John Vansickle and the support from donors like you, we will be able to restore even more land at a faster pace in the coming years. I thank you for your enthusiastic support of our Beauty of Nature Film Series and Wild & Scenic Film Festival, which drew thousands of nature lovers together throughout the year. We also enjoyed joining with our community and the City of Rancho Palos Verdes to celebrate the Grand Re-Opening of Abalone Cove Shoreline Park and the completion of the California Coastal Trail in RPV.

Preserving land and restoring habitat for the education and enjoyment of all.

Preserve John Vansickle Moving to California in the mid-1970s, the late John Vansickle found his home in Palos Verdes among the Peninsula’s wide open spaces and in the solitude of it all. The Indianapolis native came to the area to work as a mechanical engineer, specializing in military aircraft, for Northrop Aircraft Corp. There he joined a group of colleagues who traveled together as the Hikers and Packers Group, backpacking to the depths of the Grand Canyon and to the heights of the Sierras. “He loved the outdoors,” his niece Lea Vansickle said, adding that he had been an avid hiker since his days as a student at Purdue University. He also traveled on his own to go hiking and camping. Here at home, John could be found traversing the trails throughout Palos Verdes. It wasn’t long before John became concerned that Los Angeles County would to try to annex areas of the Peninsula. A desirable area for developers, he worried about the preservation of his beloved open space and hiking trails. “He worried about keeping open spaces open and keeping PV the way that it was,” Lea said. John joined the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy’s Mariposa Circle to aid its preservation effort. Four years ago, after his health began to decline, John informed the Conservancy of his intention to bequeath to the nonprofit a gift through his estate. Following his death at the age of 78 in April 2014, John’s estate gave the Conservancy a sizeable donation, an amount twice its annual budget. “He was a very generous person. When he cared about something, he cared about it 100 percent,” his niece said. “I think he really surprised the Conservancy with his gift, the amount, but that was kind of how he was.” John did not leave instructions about how his gift should be used, instead leaving it up to the Conservancy’s Board of Directors to decide which restoration and land preservation projects should get priority. John believed in the Conservancy and its mission to preserve and restore open space, Lea said. “He was very loyal to the causes he believed in, and that he really loved.”

The Conservancy’s new Golden Poppy Heritage Circle will recognize all gifts received or intended in the future through estate gifts. A special poppy planting is scheduled for fall 2015. Please call for information if you wish to be invited.

Jeanne and Arthur Hadley with two of their children, William Hadley and Carolyn Hadley-Colburn


Restore Jeanne and Arthur Hadley Wanting to leave Hancock Park and the urban environment behind, Jeanne and Arthur Hadley moved with their three children to the open space and fresh air of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. “The way my parents tell the story, they fell in love with the area the first day they drove here,” their son William Hadley said. He and his sister Carolyn were born after the family moved to the Peninsula. Following the closure of Marineland in February 1987, Jeanne and Arthur, like many of their neighbors, became worried about potential development at the site and along the rest of the coastline. “The community didn’t want to lose its open space – the thing that makes PV what it is,” William said. The Hadleys joined fellow community members and supported a fledgling Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy. They remained active, helping the Conservancy to grow and create the 1,400-acre Palos Verdes Nature Preserve. Now in their older years, the two longtime Legacy Circle members are not as active in Conservancy events as they once were. But their love of the organization and what it does has not waned. When the couple decided to close their family foundation, they chose to give the remaining funds to the Conservancy. In October 2014, Jeanne and Arthur gifted the Conservancy’s first endowment. The Hadley Endowment will provide a generous annual gift of approximately $60,000 in perpetuity to support the Conservancy’s land restoration activities. “To be able to give to an organization that is near and dear to your heart is one thing, but also an organization that is near and dear to future generations,” William said. Jeanne and Arthur hope that by creating this endowment it will encourage others to make similar donations to provide long-term support for the Conservancy, either through the Hadley Endowment or by creating separate endowments through estate plans and annual gifts. Jeanne and Arthur remain private about the details of their generosity, but others can celebrate their gift at the Del Cerro Park recognition site and on two new trail markers on Burma Road Trail, where they can see for themselves Jeanne and Arthur’s lasting message: Forever Cherish This Land.

Educate Yvetta Williams As a child Yvetta Williams was fascinated by the natural world around her. Birds, bees, butterflies, insects, flowers, and plants – she loved every one of them. “There are a lot of wonderful things in the world if we take the time to observe them,” she said.

2014

Born in San Pedro and raised on the east side of the Peninsula, Yvetta’s formative years were spent outdoors, exploring the area’s open fields, hillsides and canyons. She gained extensive knowledge about local animals and vegetation through her own curiosity and observation. As Yvetta grew older she went on to study elementary education, art and apparel merchandising at the University of California, Los Angeles, but she never left her beloved natural world behind.

2014

She and her husband, Dick, owned their own business, traveled the world, and raised two children, yet found time to traverse local trails photographing the plants and flowers that grow on the Peninsula.

2014 celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the Third Grade Nature Education Program In 2005 she embarked on a new adventure with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy. When she learned the nonprofit had launched a major fundraising campaign to acquire land for the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, she and her husband joined the effort. Both strongly believed that preserving and protecting open space in Palos Verdes was a highly worthwhile endeavor. She felt – and she continues to feel – that we must set aside land to provide homes for all other life forms, “including the littlest insects,” she said. “Even the littlest, minutest insect has a purpose.” Her involvement with the Conservancy continued long after the land had been acquired. Yvetta collaborated with Stewardship Associate Ann Dalkey to produce the nonprofit’s “Native Wildflowers of the Palos Verdes Peninsula,” a beautiful guidebook featuring 270 color photographs. She also helped to create the study materials used for the Conservancy’s Third-Grade Naturalist Program, designed to re-engage children’s curiosity about the outdoors and to help them develop an interest in nature. If you really love the outdoors as a child, like Yvetta, it’s a passion you carry into your adult life. “This is the most wonderful place in the world,” she said. “We have to protect it.”

h i g h l i g h t s

Celebrated the Third Grade Education Program’s 20th year with successful outreach to h over i g 34,000 h l i gstudents h t sand 7,600 parents for our school based education programs. ____________________________ Served 3,463 students from 35 elementary schools in Third Grade and Science Students as Stewards programs. ____________________________ Mentored six high school students who entered their research projects in the Palos Verdes Science Fair. Each student received honorable mention, and one was awarded First Place in Earth and Space Science. ____________________________ Trained five college interns to assist with vegetation monitoring at restoration sites that provides data for restoration program assessment. 9


Enjoy Becky Cool Tays Cool loved the Peninsula. Those who pause at the Cool Overlook in the Forrestal Reserve and gaze upon the breathtaking view can see why. “Tays loved this town. He absolutely loved it here,” Becky Cool said of her late husband. “To have something in honor of him, it’s very special. Very, very special.” Becky wanted to pay tribute to her beloved husband’s memory and she found the perfect opportunity in 2005. She read in a local newspaper article that the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy was starting a fundraising campaign to purchase large parcels of land for preservation, and was offering donors the chance to name a site or a trail. To seal the deal, once Becky read that the Annenberg Foundation was going to match the funds, she said to herself, “Boom! I’m doing this.” She worked with Barbara Dye, who was the Conservancy’s executive director, to choose a site that would honor Tays and his love for the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Because rheumatoid arthritis had taken away his ability to walk or stand during the last years of his life, it was important to Becky that the location be handicap accessible. Dye found her an easily accessible overlook with a stunning ocean view. Friends, family, and Conservancy members gathered at Cool Overlook to dedicate the site, celebrating with wine and cheese. Becky still goes there and has minicelebrations toasting Tays with dear friends and family members. Her time with the Conservancy started out as a gesture for her husband, but it has blossomed into another love affair. The Legacy Circle member has become one of the Conservancy’s most enthusiastic cheerleaders. She’s one of the first to buy a ticket for a fundraising event, and one of the first to volunteer for a committee. In February she opened her home to surprise the Conservancy’s visiting AmeriCorps volunteers with a Valentine’s Day-themed party. Becky and Tays, who were both self-made people, believed that it was important to give back to their community. Preserving land as beautiful as the Peninsula’s is a “forever deal” that will give enjoyment to the many generations to follow. “That’s such a blessing to have,” Becky said, “to know that this site is there forever … and it benefits so many people beyond us.”

“Interacting with the students in their classroom is fun and engaging, especially while sharing hands-on teaching aids like local plant and animal specimens, including plant cuttings, pelts, feathers and bird nests. This is a great way to teach the children about the wonders of nature…in our local areas and is a very rewarding experience as a volunteer.” ~ Cindy Blindbury

“The Conservancy’s preservation work makes it possible for community members of every age to make connections with nature. As an open space advocate and youth educator, I am grateful to be able to share these connections with our children, the environmental stewards of the future. Eventually our children will apply their knowledge both globally and locally to keep our open space beautiful for the next generation.” ~ Diana Heffernan-Schrader, Recipient of the Deena Sheridan Nature Education Award
