The Michael and Tricia Bern Canyon Preserve at Laguna Canyon Foundation’s headquarters is slated to be completed in Summer 2022.

We are very proud to be working with Michael and Tricia and Terremoto Landscape. Together, we’ve committed to “Keep it Wild and Weird.”  We will honor the land; we will honor the labor; and we will reuse as many materials as possible.

This renovation will include a Discovery Terrace with meandering trails, a Gathering Terrace with an amphitheater and a Utility Terrace to support our restoration and conservation efforts.

More invasive plants will be removed, allowing the native elderberries and toyons their place in the sun while we explore potential features like a cedar gathering deck, a mandala like labyrinth or a rock lined arroyo.

Honoring the history of this land, and the people who have inhabited this land for hundreds of years will allow us to restore this wilderness and inspire our community to protect the land we all love so very much.

Watch our progress here!
