Every year, hundreds of thousands of people visit our parks and the sensitive wildlife habitat is threatened by invasive species and extensive fire seasons. Wilderness edges are nibbled away by road expansion, utility companies and private development exemptions. And people are impacting the land through irresponsible behavior like littering and riding or wandering off authorized trails.

That’s the mission of Laguna Canyon Foundation: to protect this land against these evolving threats. Not only for our wildlife, who have so little native habitat left, but also so that people like you can continue to experience the land you love. We can’t do it without you.

Laguna Canyon Foundation Wilderness Center

For the first time in our history, Laguna Canyon Foundation has a home base in the wilderness parks we protect. Located off Laguna Canyon Road, this gathering space will expand our capacity and impact by serving as a headquarters for the environmental community. Visitors can learn about their canyons through the center’s dedicated teaching gardens, interpretive exhibits, and accessible nature trails. As Laguna Canyon Foundation embarks upon our next stage, we hope you’ll join us in protecting the land we all love.

We are raising $1.8 million to build and maintain the Laguna Canyon Foundation Wilderness Center and we need your help. Supporting this campaign is an investment in a greener future ensuring that Laguna Canyon Foundation’s open space protection and preservation will continue for generations.

Planned Giving

How do you want to be remembered? In 1968, James Dilley set out to save Laguna’s greenbelt. In 1990, his dream led to the founding of Laguna Canyon Foundation. We’ve been working ever since to keep Dilley’s legacy alive and protect Laguna’s beautiful coastal canyons.

Now you have a chance to create your own legacy. A charitable bequest to Laguna Canyon Foundation will ensure our open space is protected for generations to come.
