GROUP HIKE to Follow
LagunaCoast Wilderness Park lies within some of the last remaining coastal canyons in Southern California. The park ecosystem is primarily Coastal Sage Scrub, with Maritime Chaparral, Oak Woodlands, Riparian habitats, and the ONLY natural lakes in Orange County. The park is also enrolled in the Natural Community Conservation Planning program designed to protect various endangered species (California Gnatcatcher, Cactus Wren, Orange-Throated Whiptail) by preserving large tracts of the rapidly diminishing coastal sage ecosystem.
Volunteers will help Laguna Canyon Foundation and OC Parks with restoration Projects. The Laguna Coast Wilderness Park - Little Sycamore Canyon/Nix Nature Center will be the staging area (west side of Laguna Canyon Road/SR – 133, approximately 3.5 miles south I-405).
