Film: West of the West – Tales from California’s Channel Islands

The conclusion of this series that examines the fascinating human history of California’s Channel Islands.

Part 3: Return

12 PM & 2 PM

Often called the Galapagos of North America, the Channel Islands lie just off the Southern California coast, in plain sight of millions of people. However, few know the names of these islands or even how many there are. Fewer still know the fascinating tales of those who’ve lived, worked, discovered, surfed, dived, ranched, wrecked, or were rescued on these unique and beautiful islands. West of the West – Tales from California’s Channel Islands delves deeper into the history of the Channel Islands in a three-part film series.

The final installment of this series details the dramatic efforts to restore and preserve the Channel Islands. From Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh’s devotion to saving Santa Cruz Island, to the confrontation of preservationists and animal rights activists over the fate of unique island species, learn more about the efforts to preserve and protect the Channel Islands.

Running time 60 minutes
