OC Habitats (OCH) hosts a variety of events throughout the year.  These events include guided bird tours, guided habitat hikes in various OC locations, MPA hikes in our Crystal Cove MPA, local habitat restorations, and our discussion series, Coffee & Conservation.  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, at your desk or under fluorescent lights. 

 

We try plan our events about two months out but sometimes create a new opportunity spontaneously. We partner with several other organizations and may share events that align with our mission and goals of habitat conservation and species preservation. 

Check out our events and sign up today!

HABITAT CLEANUP

OCH offers a Habitat Tours and clean-ups in our local habitats. We can host a restoration and cleanup event at one of our local restoration sites or take you on a guided hike in a specified habitat (coastal sage scrub, chaparral, grasslands, riparian, wetlands, and more). During these events we will learn about the habitat and do a clean-up as we go.  This is great for schools and corporations that are seeking volunteer opportunities.

GUIDED HIKES:
INLAND AND 
MPA

We explore a variety of habitats within Orange County where we will explore beautiful regions in the area, learn about plants and animals that use the area, and even learn about some edible and medicinal plants.

 

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.  All participants must 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. Participants must be 16 years or older or 10 year and older with a parent/guardian.

RESTORATION

OC Habitats schedules monlty restoration projects around Orange County with a variety of different partners such as Huntington Beach Wetlands Conserancy, Project Grow, and OC Parks.  We are open to all volunteers, 12 and older, and especially like groups from corporations, clubs, and sports teams. We will sign for high school volunteer hours, so bring your paperwork.

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.

TEAM BUILDING and CELEBRATIONS

There are a variety of ways to connect with your co-workers, board members, and teammates and OC Habitats is happy to support an alternate experience by providing a tide pool exploration or hike for your team. 

We also provide events for celebrations such as birthday parties for children and adults alike. If you want to do something different and support your local ecosystems and nonprofits, email us at OCH@ochabitats.org
