L eo Carrillo State Park—an inviting treasure trove of tide pools, offshore reefs, canyon streams and challenging backcountry— is located in the Santa Monica Mountains 35 miles northwest of Santa Monica. Its variety of recreational activities is limited only by the visitor’s imagination. From traditional beach recreation like sunbathing, fishing, whale watching and swimming to more strenuous pastimes such as surfing, hiking, diving, windsurfing, kayaking and camping, Leo Carrillo is a haven for adventurers. Who was Leo Leo Carrillo Carrillo? Leo Carrillo State Park is named after a star of Broadway, television and film. Descended from prominent early California families— his great-grandfather was Carlos Antonio de Jesus Carrillo, a governor of California in the last years of Mexican rule— Mr. Carrillo’s talent lay in entertainment. He began as a vaudeville comedian; his prolific film career lasted from the late 1920s well into the 1960s. One of his more recognizable roles was the comic sidekick in the television series “The Cisco Kid.” Leo Carrillo served 14 years on the State Beaches and Parks Commission; he was instrumental in the state’s acquisition of much of the property between Malibu Lagoon and Point Mugu, including the area named after him. PARK History Archaeologists believe that the Chumash people, superb artisans who excelled at basketry and elaborate rock art, lived in the area as long ago as 6000 B.C.E. They enjoyed playing games, singing, dancing and trading with other tribes. Their plank boats carried them to the Channel Islands to trade, fish and gather mussels and abalone. In the late 1700s, Spaniards settled the area, forcing dramatic changes on the Chumash and their way of life. Native American labor built Mission San Buenaventura, but the regimented mission life and the effects of European diseases took a toll on the Chumash. After inhabiting this land for thousands of years, they had nearly disappeared by 1920. Today many Chumash descendants still celebrate and share their vibrant cultural traditions. THE LAND The Mediterranean climate and varied topography support chaparral, coastal sage scrub, riparian woodland, wildflowers and coastal strand plant communities. Higher inland regions support dense brush, fire-adapted chaparral species such as chamise, manzanita, ceanothus and scrub oak. Lower elevations are home to the sage scrub plant community — prickly pear cactus, buckwheat, giant coreopsis, California sagebrush and bush sunflower. Riparian plant communities — California bay, willow, black walnut and sycamore trees — grow in the cool, moist environment along Arroyo Sequit. Rabbits, bobcats and coyotes thrive here, along with squirrels and scrub jays. Hikers often see acorn woodpeckers, horned owls, quail, warblers and redtailed hawks. Mule deer, gray foxes and raccoons forage in the riparian woodland at night. Amphibians and reptiles include salamanders, toads, lizards, rattlesnakes, gopher and king snakes. An interpretive walk through coastal sage scrub habitat and nearby Staircase and County Line beaches are especially popular. Swimming, boogie boarding and sunbathing are also favorite activities. Know your limits and learn about weather and ocean conditions. If you get caught in a rip current that causes you to drift from shore, do not swim against it. Instead, swim parallel to the shore until you are out of the current, then swim back towards shore. OTHER RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES Small coves await discovery. THE SEA Small beach coves in this year-round paradise offer privacy and ocean access for anglers, divers, surfers, wildlife watchers and beach walkers. Tide pools — During seasonal low tides, visitors may spot sea stars, anemones, mussels, crabs and other tide pool creatures. Tide pool animals are fragile and need your help to protect them. Picking up animals may injure them. Marine mammals — Gray whales migrating do

Leo Carrillo ¿QUIÉN FUE LEO CARRILLO? El Parque Estatal Leo Carrillo se denomina de tal manera por una estrella de Broadway, de televisión y de cine. Era descendiente de una de las primeras familias prominentes de California — su bisabuelo se llamaba Carlos Antonio de Jesús Carrillo y se desempeñó como gobernador de California durante los últimos años del dominio mexicano — el señor Carrillo tenía talento para el entretenimiento. Inició su carrera como actor de comedia vodevil, y su prolífica carrera en cine se extendió desde fines de 1920 hasta bien entrada la década de 1960. Una de sus interpretaciones reconocidas fue su participación como compinche en la serie televisiva “The Cisco Kid.” Leo Carrillo trabajó 14 años en las layas estatales y en la comisión de parques, cumplió una función muy importante en la adquisición de una gran parte de la propiedad entre la Laguna de Malibú y Punta Mugu, incluida el área que lleva su nombre. de las enfermedades europeas tuvieron consecuencias devastadoras para los chumash. Luego de haber habitado esas tierras por miles de años, para 1920 habían desaparecido casi por completo. Actualmente muchos descendientes de los chumash siguen celebrando y compartiendo sus emocionantes tradiciones culturales. LA TIERRA El clima mediterráneo y la variada topografía son la base donde crecen los chaparrales, los matorrales costeros, los bosques riparios, las flores silvestres y las comunidades de plantas costeras. Las regiones continentales más elevadas son la base donde se desarrollan los arbustos tupidos y diversas especies de chaparrales adaptables a las consecuencias de los incendios, tales como las adenostomas, manzanitas o HISTORIA DEL PARQUE Los arqueólogos consideran que los chumash, excelentes artesanos que se destacaban por la cestería y su arte rupestre elaborado, habitaban el área desde cerca del 6,000 B.C.E. Disfrutaban de jugar juegos, cantar, bailar y comerciar con otras tribus. Utilizaban canoas para transportarse hasta el Archipiélago del norte para comercializar, para pescar y recolectar mejillones y abulones. A fines de 1700, los españoles se asentaron en el área lo cual provocó cambios drásticos en el estilo de vida de los chumash.

Las tierras más bajas son el hábitat de comunidades de plantas costeras — tales como la opuntia, el trigo sarraceno, la coreopsis gigantea, la artemisia californica y la encelia de california. Comunidades de plantas riparias — Como por ejemplo las umbellularia, los sauces, los nogales negros y los sicómoros — crecen a lo largo del Arroyo Sequit en un clima frío y húmedo. Aquí crecen conejos, linces y coyotes, así como también ardillas y charras californianas. A menudo, los excursionistas ven pájaros carpinteros belloteros, búhos americanos, codornices, currucas y gavilanes colirrojos. Durante las noches, los ciervos mulos, los zorros grises y los mapaches se alimentan en los bosques riparios. Las comunidades de an
