Catalina’s singed ecosystem

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

The May fire on Catalina is long extinguished, but how did it affect the island’s ecosystem? The Classic Inland Motor Tour, which uses restored 1950s-era Flxible buses as it winds through 31 miles on the wild side of Catalina, now adds a stop in a burn area. Drivers explain the environmental changes caused by the fire. (Hint: It’s not all bad.) Cost: $69 for adults, $34.50 for children ages 3 to 11 (not including transportation to Catalina). Two other tours — Cape Canyon and Skyline Drive — also pass by the area. Call (800) 626-1496, or go to www.visitcatalinaisland.com/avalon/Tours.php.
