COVID-19

Dear Friends of OCH,

June 27, 2020

As we continue to work through the current COVID-19 pandemic we are adhering to federal, state, and local requirements on social distancing.  Currently we are only doing volunteer monitor training and small restoration projects in person while all other work is virtual.  As restrictions are lifted and it is safe for us to gather in larger groups we will resume our outreach, education, and restoration programs.  If you are interested in being notified of upcoming events, join our mailing list.

OC Habitats (OCH) hosts a variety of events throughout the year.  These events range from bird lecture series to MPA hikes in the Crystal Cove MPA.  Most of our offerings are outdoors, in nature.  You will find this a refreshing change from your everyday routine of work, school, or everyday life that keeps you indoors and under fluorescent lights. 

 

We plan our events about 3 months out and are always open to suggestions.  We also partner with many other organizations and like to share their events that align with our mission and goals of habitat conservation and species preservation. 

Check out our events and sign up today!

TIDEPOOL EXPLORATION

Tidepool Exploration Hikes are for the whole family, any age. We explore the local tidepools in various locations in Orange Co., such as Little Corona and Laguna Beach. We require that all participants wear non-slip shoes and a sense of adventure.

MARINE PROTECTED AREA HIKE

Marine Protected Area (MPA) Hike is a beautiful hike that begins at Little Corona Beach, heads southeast to Crystal Cove, and ends back at Little Corona Beach.  This is a tide and weather-dependent hike.  OCH requires all participants to be in good health, able to walk over slippery and rough rocks for up to 3 miles, wear closed-toed athletic shoes, and bring their own water and snacks.  Our hikes are led by an experienced guide with knowledge of hiking and the marine habitat.  All participants must be 16 years and older.

HABITAT TOUR AND CLEANUP

OCH offers a Habitat Tour and Clean-up to small groups (30 or less).  We will tour you around the specified habitat (beach, riparian, park, etc) and will do a clean-up as we go.  This is great for schools and corporations that need to meet volunteer and community goals.
