Park legally (note street signs) on or near Canyon Vistas, preferably between Coastal Oak and Madia (22144 region of Canyon Vistas).

9:00 AMKeep It Wild

Join Laguna Canyon Foundation and OC Parks during our habitat restoration stewardship events in Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park as we learn and work together to create a healthier home for the native plants and wildlife that call this area their home. Depending on the time of year, volunteers will assist with various stewardship activities, including removal of non-native plants, seed collection, planting of native plants and/or trash pick-up along the creek.

  • No experience is necessary, and all tools will be provided. Please wear long pants, close-toed shoes, sun protection and bring water.
  • Come out and join the team to help restore the wild lands we all enjoy.
  • Location: Meet at the Aliso Viejo Community Park (Parking lot in front of soccer fields/playground) at 150 Cedarbrook, Aliso Viejo, CA.
  • Age Requirements: Ages 5 – 16 are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent. Students 16 – 18 years old are welcome with a waiver signed by a parent/guardian that is collected at the start of the event. The waiver will be sent to you after the online registration form is completed.
