Located just a quick 25 minutes give or take from L.A cental, the Malibu Canyon area offers a fantastic variety of fauna, flora and terrain for the beginner to expert naturalist/hiker/adventurer. many species of sage, grasses, herbs, trees, shrubs and the like abound in the Malibu canyon. A few favorites of mine is the California Oak, California Black Walnut, Coastal Sage, California Yuka, and less common California White Alder. Just a few of the many species of wildlife include: bobcats, coyote, mountain lion, Owls, rabbits, deer, hawks, crows, mice, snakes, gophers and rats. The geology includes many forms of strata including: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock, and a plethora of geologic formations such as alluvial fans, deltas, gullies,thrust faulting, cliffs, stone runs and stacks.
