Dear Friends, We are pleased to share highlights from 2018 in this Annual Report, celebrating the Conservancy’s 30th year! Thanks to the thousands of supporters and volunteers, we’ve accomplished many major milestones over the past three decades. In partnerships with local cities and other agencies, we’ve preserved and restored many of the precious natural areas that make the Peninsula refuge for endangered birds, butterflies and other wildlife protected forever in 1,600 acres of native habitat. This year’s report recaptures the inspiring story of Bill and Barb Ailor’s vision in 1988. During a hike on what is now McBride Trail, the Ailors looked out to the Pacific Ocean and decided to do something to protect the Peninsula from overdevelopment. They met the challenge by finding innovative ways to raise funds and garner city and community support to acquire land from willing sellers. This report also summarizes our impressive accomplishments in many areas during the past year! The Conservancy is celebrating the incredible 25,000 hours that volunteers have dedicated to land restoration and related operations. This time includes both a record number of corporate outdoor volunteer days and the addition of many community groups new to our activities. The tremendous winter rainfall helped alleviate the effects of prolonged drought, providing welcome relief. The resulting massive weed growth posed additional challenges, which we met with increased efforts by hungry goats, hardworking volunteers and skilled stewardship staff to improve habitat for Peninsula wildlife. The Conservancy remains committed to conserving and restoring natural land. We look forward to beginning new restoration projects and continuing with fun, educational, nature-based outdoor activities. There is much more for us to do in the coming years as we continue to recruit and train walk leaders and nature center docents to inspire the involvement of future generations of land stewards. Thank you for your contributions, which enable us to continue our essential work. Warm regards,

Adrienne Mohan

Preserve and Restore

30 Years of Land Preservation Thirty years after founding the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy, Bill and Barbara Ailor reflect on the community of people it took to create a land preservation trust.

It seemed like a ridiculous concept to some: to purchase valuable land and preserve it as natural, open space for the enjoyment of everyone. Looking back 30 years later, it was an audacious dream that succeeded. The Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy, founded in 1988 by Bill Ailor, supportive wife Barbara and a group of community leaders, conserved a 1,400-acre green oasis in Rancho Palos Verdes. This protected land is comprised of 10 reserves collectively known as the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, along with another 200 acres of land in San Pedro and Rolling Hills Estates which is owned or managed by the Conservancy. The Conservancy oversees ongoing restoration and offers educational programs while continually watching for new land purchase opportunities.

simply for the purpose of saving it from development. Undaunted, the Conservancy went to work talking to elected officials on the Peninsula, in Los Angeles County and in Sacramento, and showed lawmakers a book of photographs with information proving the land worthy of protection. Bill started a newsletter and others soon joined the effort to raise funds and awareness. The Conservancy gained momentum when Ken Zuckerman and his family donated the first 20 acres of land in Lunada Canyon. “That put the Conservancy on the map,” Barb said. “People surfaced at opportune times and jumped in to help where needed. It was never just the two of us.”

The Ailors moved to Southern California in 1974. Both had grown up in areas with lots of open space: Bill, in Virginia, and Barb, on a farm in upstate New York. Luckily, friends advised the couple to find a home in Palos Verdes—the only place in the Los Angeles area with ample open space.

Bill began working with local developers. “Some people didn’t understand,” Bill said. But he knew that to be successful, they needed to interface with developers “so we brought a developer onto the board and he helped us gain credibility in the development community.”

The Ailors enjoyed hiking near their new home. They noticed a lot of development springing up and became concerned. Bill’s first step into city government was eight years on the Rolling Hills Estates Planning Commission. He saw firsthand the number of developers wanting to develop large parcels of land. When he mentioned the idea of establishing a nature preserve to Rolling Hills Estates staff, they referred him to The Trust for Public Land, a national nonprofit organization that buys acreage for parkland. Bill scheduled a Trust speaker to conduct a workshop at the Peninsula Library.

The Conservancy’s primary focus for years was land preservation. As it began to acquire land like Chandler Trust and the Forrestal properties, new efforts began to include land restoration. Each acquisition was different, but some of the land had been degraded by unsustainable uses such as quarrying, military training and agriculture. In some areas, invasive, nonnative plants choked natural habitats putting local wildlife species at risk.

A dozen workshop participants then volunteered to help start a local land trust. A local attorney helped to set up the nonprofit organization, which was incorporated in July 1988. Eleven volunteers joined the first board of directors. The early days were challenging. The fledging Conservancy was ridiculed and sometimes mistrusted by elected officials and community members. No one believed the group could ever raise enough money to buy land

The Conservancy took aggressive steps to remove non-native plants. Volunteers created a native plant nursery at the former site of the Navy Defense Fuel Support Point in San Pedro. Today the Conservancy’s nursery cultivates more than 60 species of local plants for restoration work with the help of full-time nursery staff to train and supervise volunteers. “When non-native plants were removed,” Barb said, “some areas revived quickly and the native flora and fauna began to flourish again. Some restoration sites required far more work to help them return to their healthy, natural state.” (Continued on page 7)

Educate and Enjoy The Conservancy realized the need to emphasize these lands are preserves and not parks. “Not everyone understands that preserves are uniquely fragile and precious,” Barb said. “The idea is to have people enjoy the land after it is protected and while it is being restored to its natural condition.” There are miles of multi-use trails throughout the Preserves. Nature enthusiasts, equestrians and mountain bikers all enjoy the land. To educate people on the proper use of the trails and protect restored

Barb looks forward to the future. “We need to reach more people with education about native plants and how they benefit rare, local species of birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Kids and adults need to see how ecosystems work” said Barb. Thirty years later, these lands are available for future generations to visit, enjoy and take refuge from the stresses of city life. “And it all happened,” Bill said, “because of the many different people who volunteered their unique talents to make the dream a reality.” Some

Kids and adults need to see how ecosystems work.” habitats and returning wildlife, Barb helped the Conservancy start a Volunteer Trail Watch group to coordinate with the city of Rancho Palos Verdes. The Conservancy also offers guided nature walks and operates two nature centers with many community enrichment opportunities. The Conservancy started a Third Grade Naturalist Program 20 years ago. Today the program serves 28 schools annually, with approximately 2,000 students from elementary schools in Palos Verdes, San Pedro, Lomita, Carson, Wilmington, Torrance, Redondo Beach and Los Angeles. Trained docents begin with classroom visits and carefully designed lesson plans aligned with current educational standards. The program culminates in a guided walk in local open space. “Some of the children,” said the Ailors, “are seeing a natural setting for the first time in their lives.”

wanted to “get their hands dirty” and got involved with restoration; some wanted to walk the trails and educate the public; others liked doing the legal work associated with acquiring property. Generous gifts from the community to provide the funding for land purchases made it all possible. For the 1,400-acre PV Nature Preserve, more than $30 million came from state and federal resources, along with more than $10 million from generous community members. All of this was then given to the city of Rancho Palos Verdes, with the Conservancy as habitat manager. Expensive restoration work continues today on protected land, thanks to support from generous community members. The Ailors didn’t know what to expect when they first launched their plan. “But,” they said, “people in the community really got behind the idea of protecting land. Everything just took off from there.”

“I volunteer because it connects me to the land, plants and animals in this beautiful ecosystem.” “Volunteering for the Conservancy is rewarding in so many ways: from the sights, sounds and scents of nature to the simple joy we get from assisting someone with directions. Having used these trails from childhood, the opportunity to give back just came naturally and the exercise is an added bonus.”
