The 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. We hope you’ll join us in protecting the land we all love.


We’re 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.

Turning the Laguna Canyon Foundation Wilderness Center from a dream into a reality will take a community effort, and we are pleased to offer several naming opportunities to provide our generous donors prominent recognition. You, your family, or your organization can put your stamp on south Orange County’s environmental hub.

We hope you’ll join us in protecting the land we all love.
