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.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF LOS SERENOS: The Los Serenos de Point Vicente docents were formed in answer to a need created by the opening of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in 1984. The City of Rancho Palos Verdes, which owns and operates the Center, hired a Recreation Specialist to solicit and train volunteers. The volunteers provide educational information on the natural and cultural history of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the migrating Gray whales that could be easily viewed from the Center’s outstanding vantage point by the Center’s many visitors. The first group of 25 volunteers underwent training with local experts on geology, history and marine mammals and after graduation, went to work sharing their enthusiasm and new-found knowledge with local and International visitors. The original class selected the name “Los Serenos de Point Vicente” which means “Night Watchman of Point Vicente” to represent their group. Later the group obtained separate non-profit recognition as a formal 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
