Irvine Open Space Preserve
One of the most rewarding ways to experience the beauty of the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks is as a volunteer. Volunteers have a crucial role in the land, whether it is serving as docent-guides on a mountain-bike ride through Fremont Canyon, teaching middle school students about ecosystems in Limestone Canyon, helping to maintain a trail near Bommer Canyon Preserve or planting oaks near Weir Canyon.
