Catalina Island Conservancy is joining #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Did you know that Sheephead fish can grow up to 3 feet and can weigh up to 36 pounds? They hunt for food during the day and when night time rolls around they swim into caves and crevices wrapping themselves in a mucus cocoon.

The Catalina Chimes Tower Foundation would like to thank everyone who has contributed so generously to the ongoing restoration of this unique and wonderful jewel. In 2017, significant progress was made on Phase One, including conducting a thorough cleanup of the area and having an engineer determine that the foundation of the structure was sound. Concrete was also poured for the soon-to-be-created entry patio and the curb around it, as well as the stairs leading to the mechanical room, replacing the worn-out wooden steps.
