Volunteers are the lifeblood of Rancho Los Cerritos. Volunteers assist the Rancho with a number of affairs such as giving tours of the adobe house and gardens, staffing the visitor center, working in the museum shop, helping with special events, performing research, gardening, and so much more. These meetings will cover a series of topics that highlights how individuals can give back to their community in a fun, educational and meaningful way.
Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds of Rancho Los Cerritos echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern and urban society it is today. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. It is owned by the City of Long Beach and operated through the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine.
