Adopt a Canyon – Agua Chinon Stewardship

Adopt a Canyon - Agua Chinon Stewardship

Are you a nature lover, hiker, gardener, or just want to get outside and enjoy the fresh air? Does the idea of adopting a canyon across four seasons and being part of a longer term project interest you? Please come help Irvine Ranch Conservancy restore local habitat, native plants and wildlife so they may thrive in Agua Chinon.

After spending time restoring native habitats, the group will take a short ride to see The Sinks, a spectacular geological formation in Limestone Canyon.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-3 activity on the land.

No experience is necessary other than a desire to explore and care for our open space. Participants will engage in plant identification, removal of invasive weeds, and planting native plants. Simple tools will be provided for you as required. Sturdy footwear is recommended for walking on uneven terrain, kneeling, bending, and gardening in the wilderness.

This activity originates in the City of Irvine and travels into OC Parks’ Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve.  From our conveniently located Portola staging area, come venture out for something big each month, adopt Agua Chinon!

Participants must be at least 14 years of age by the time of the activity. All minors must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian or responsible adult and must bring a liability waiver completed and signed by parent/legal guardian. For more information or to obtain a copy of the waiver, email Deby Rice at Please include the event title and date on the Subject.
