Friends of Rancho Los Cerritos -- Who Are We?


Friends of Rancho Los Cerritos formed in 1963 to support, preserve, promote and interpret the historical and cultural aspects of Rancho Los Cerritos in support of the Rancho's mission. A 501c3 organization directed by an elected board, much work is accomplished through its volunteer-run committees. "Friends" underwrites public programs and small restoration projects, provides an active and vital volunteer corps, coordinates gift shop operations, and offers both monthly communications and special educational and social programs for members only. Membership is open to all.
