Laguna Coast Wilderness
PROJECT: Habitat Restoration in Orange County
Laguna Coast Wilderness Park’s 7,000 acres are some of the last remaining coastal canyons in Southern California. Forty miles of trails lead through oak and sycamore woodlands and up onto ridges with expansive scenic vistas. Its beautiful. Visitors to Laguna Coast Wilderness Park can see California as it has existed for thousands of years. And that’s more the reason to try to preserve this habitat!
Over the last years, the California drought has caused the only two lakes in the park to dry up. In the dry lakebeds, many invasive weeds (like the horrible bull thistle, ouch!) have landed and claimed real estate. ¡No bueno! By getting in and removing all of the invasive species we can hopefully help restore this lake habitat for the El Niño rains! A lot of wildlife benefit from this preservation include Mule Deer, Long-tailed Weasel, Bobcat, Red-tailed Hawk, and many more.
Thanks to all our friends and to Seed People's Market for supporting the event. We look forward to seeing the impact of our efforts this winter. Keep it wild. Til next time!
