Site Etiquette

At Rancho Los Cerritos, our staff strives to provide a place of peace, beauty, and safety for the quiet enjoyment of our visitors. We welcome you to explore, but please ensure the site can be enjoyed by all for years to come.

  • For your safety, do not pick the fruit or plants, we harvest all edible plants at peak freshness so you don’t have to. If you’d like to help harvest, please sign up to volunteer. You can also visit the museum shop to taste the fruits of our labor.
  • Stay on marked paths. Certain spaces like the arroyo are reserved for the wildlife to thrive.
  • Do not try to touch or feed wildlife.
  • We are a smoke-free site.
  • Service animals are welcome, but please keep your pets at home

Thank you for your cooperation.
