Los Serenos

Los Serenos LogoLos Serenos de Point Vicente is a volunteer organization which assists and supports the City of Rancho Palos Verdes' objectives for the Point Vicente Interpretive Center (a museum which features exhibits on the natural and cultural history of the Peninsula), Abalone Cove Shoreline Park, Forrestal Nature Preserve/Ladera Linda Community Center and the Trails at Trump National.  Los Serenos docents and volunteers provide interpretive and educational services to the community regarding the unique features and natural and cultural history of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and adjacent waters by means of docent-led tours, special events, workshops and classes.

In addition to assisting and supporting the City of Rancho Palos Verdes' parks and the Point Vicente Interpretive Center, the members of Los Serenos sponsor additional programs for Peninsula and outreach students.  In April 2013, Los Serenos received a grant for our WOW program from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing California (please click HERE for information on the grant presentation). In December 2014, the Julius Sumner Miller Foundation, a longtime sponsor of the WOW program, awarded Los Serenos de Point Vicente, a grant in support of the program for the 2014-2015 school year (please click HERE for a description of the grant).  For a more detailed description of these programs, please click HERE.

Los Serenos also has three programs for our Peninsula students; i.e., the Junior Docent Program, 6th Grade Geology Program and the 4th Grade Natural History Program. For the last two years, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes provided grant funding to these three programs. Los Serenos recently received an additional grant from the Kiwanis of Rolling Hills Estates in support of the 4th Grade Program. Please click HERE for the the grant presentation.

City of Rancho Palos Verdes Logo.Los Serenos also co-sponsors the annual Whale of a Day Celebration with the City of Rancho Palos Verdes. In 2015, the WOAD celebration will be on Saturday, April 4.
