Quick Links


Acton Wash Sanctuary is located in Acton, California, a beautiful northern Los Angeles County town named by a local miner from Acton, Massachusetts.  The Sanctuary is nestled in the Sierra Pelona Mountains.  A secondary branch of headwaters run through the Sanctuary all the way to the Santa Clara River.  The 75-acre sanctuary has four distinct seasons, with snow during the winter and colorful floral displays during the spring and fall.  Here we can see a gradual blending of coastal and desert plant communities.
