Interpretive

Discover unique historical tales about the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks as we celebrate different cultures together! Each month, a different culture and celebration will be highlighted, usually with the program presented in multiple languages which allows everyone to fully enjoy the beauty of the land. This month we will focus on local Native American uses of plants and the history of agriculture on the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-2 activity on the land.

Things are blooming into tasty treats along the trails this season. Discover which plants are used for our Native American uses and meals, and which were used historically on the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. We will have a chance to enjoy some of the “springtime salad” fixings before exploring the trails in Baker Canyon. Food tastings will only take place during this program before the hike, as the plants along the trails are left only for the animals. Those with food allergies please be aware certain foods served may contain nuts, soy, and milk.
