This weekend, Irvine Ranch Conservancy encourages nature lovers to spend time outdoors and give back to Orange County’s native wildlands. Whether you sign up for an upcoming stewardship event, enjoy the health benefits of exploring the seven-day access trails, or plant native species in your own garden, there are a variety of ways to show you care.
On Sunday, September 25, the whole family can enjoy an afternoon beginning mountain bike ride in OC Parks’ Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve. Families with children ages 12 and up can join IRC-certified volunteers on a longer, slow-paced, family-oriented ride through sycamores, oaks, and habitat native to California. The route will take riders to The Sinks, Orange County’s own “Grand Canyon.”
Irvine Ranch Conservancy and its partners, OC Parks, City of Irvine and the City of Newport Beach, regularly host public stewardship events throughout Orange County. Volunteers interested in helping protect local native wildlands can sign-up for stewardship activities on LetsGoOutside.org.
