Balancing recreation and conservation is the key mission for the partners of the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. While much of the protected lands are open for scheduled activities or docent-led programs only, there are many opportunities to explore on your own. Visit the Activities page for a list of upcoming programs, from hiking to biking to kids’ activities and more.
