The Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks span across nearly 40,000 acres of open spaces that stretch from expansive canyons to oak woodlands and picturesque shorelines. One of the world’s bio-diversity hot spots, the Landmarks are home to biological treasures and unique geological features where hundreds of species of plants and wildlife thrive. Protecting and preserving the lands is a unified effort that involves the dedicated work of many who help support, preserve and restore the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks.
A diverse network of partners contribute to the preservation of the Landmarks, helping protect and restore tens of thousands of acres of natural habitat. The Landmarks span open spaces in the City of Irvine, City of Newport Beach, OC Parks, and beyond. The collaborative efforts of landowners and managers ensure visitors have an opportunity to connect with nature in meaningful ways.
