 Weather Stations

To better understand climate variation on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, the Conservancy initiated a long-term weather collection program that provides localized data on rainfall, temperature, and humidity levels. Initially inspired by the late Don Gales, former National Weather Service forecaster.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Major Family Foundation, weather stations were installed in four locations throughout the Palos Verdes Peninsula and a program was created that extracts and transmits data from these strategically positioned weather stations to the Conservancy's website and archives.

Weather station locations:

  • Anacapa Suites, Lunada Bay
  • George F Canyon Nature Center, Rolling Hills Estates
  • White Point Nature Education Center, San Pedro¬†
  • Wayfarer's Chapel, Rancho Palos Verdes¬†
