Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, National Public Lands Day is traditionally the nation's largest single-day volunteer effort, celebrating the connection between people and green space in their community. This year, National Public Lands Day falls on Saturday, September 26. Even though stewardship events on the Landmarks are currently on hold, we can still appreciate the open spaces virtually.
In addition to the “Hike From Home” series, Irvine Ranch Conservancy is expanding efforts to help nature lovers connect with local Orange County habitats through spotlight videos about native wildlife, plants and the geological wonders found across the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. Learn more about the Turkey Vulture in the first IRC spotlight video on the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks IGTV. Keep a lookout for future spotlight videos by following the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Those interested in expanding their horizons can visit the National Park Service website for a variety of virtual content and programs from national parks across the United States. Nature lovers can explore a variety of natural wonders through virtual tours, webcams, multimedia galleries and more!
