The 30×30 Southland region includes all of Ventura, Los Angeles, and Orange Counties, and the western portions of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. This region is home to not only 18 million residents, but also some of the state’s most biologically diverse landscapes on the planet. The diversity stems from the geology, topography, climate, ocean influence, and the gift of time allowing for the evolution of plant and animal species. Regional priorities reflect the diversity of places, projects, and people.

What better opportunity than the 30×30 effort to bring together community groups and non-profits to advance biodiversity, equity, and climate resilience projects? This is Southern California’s moment to shine. I’m excited to be a part of it.”
