Jewfish Point, Santa Catalina Island


JEWFISH POINT: “Near the southeast extremity of the island, may be reached through difficult and uncomfortable scrambling about among the rock debris along the shore. From the base of the garbage dump to the point the vegetation is sparse and clumpy. Nicotiana glauca, Rhus laurina, Madia exigua, Zauschneria, Peresia microcephala, Rhus integrifolia, Castilleia foliolosa, Ramona stachyoides, Eriogonum giganteum and nudum and a few shrubs of Heteromeles comprise, in the main, the plants noted here. Immediately north of the Point there is a rocky watercourse a short distance up which the banks give footing for Ribes viburnifolium.”
