Introducing children to the outdoors and allowing them to experience nature is the best way to grow the next generation of nature enthusiasts, while making life-long family memories. Families interested in exploring the Landmarks can do so by signing up for a family activity through LetsGoOutside.org. Each Let’s Go Outside activity is led by an experienced volunteer trained to lead nature lovers of all ages and skill levels on an informational exploration of the Landmarks.
Families will have two chances to explore Round Canyon on Saturday, February 26 and Sunday, March 13 during Family Hike: Round Canyon. This activity originates in the City of Irvine and travels into OC Parks’ Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve, averaging 2-3 miles round trip at an easy pace.
Before you head out on the Landmarks, be sure each family member is prepared with plenty of snacks and water, first aid items, as well as sunscreen, outdoor clothing and shoes, so they can explore safely.
