From OC Parks’ geologic wonder, Limestone Canyon, to the City of Irvine’s expansive Bommer Canyon, the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks are home to diverse trail systems and natural habitat waiting to be explored by the community. The Landmarks provide outdoor enthusiasts of all ages a variety of opportunities to experience and connect with the lands. Children as young as 8 have the chance to build a lifelong love and greater appreciation for nature through several different hiking, stewardship, and interpretive programs.
In honor of Earth Day, the Boys and Girls Club had the chance to explore nature in their backyard with a field trip to the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. Sponsored by the Irvine Company and the Donald Bren Foundation, Irvine Ranch Conservancy hosted the field trip to give local 4th and 5th graders the opportunity to learn about habitat, native plants, and wildlife.
