The 30×30 Southland region includes Los Angeles, Ventura, and Orange counties, and the western portions of San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Its regional priorities include the conservation of Elephant Hill in the heart of Los Angeles, the preservation of the Aera Energy landscape, and the protection of Bird Island near Ballona Creek and Wetlands.

Regional Lead

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.”
