The mission of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy (PVPLC) is to "preserve land and restore habitat for the education and enjoyment of all."
The Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy (PVPLC) manages over 1600 acres of open space on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, and two nature centers with native plant demonstration gardens. The PVPLC engages volunteers in the development and

The Native Plant Garden Intern will work under the direction of the Garden Manager and Stewardship Associate to learn about native plant gardening practices to enhance the visual aesthetic of the White Point Native Plant Garden in San Pedro.
