Laguna Canyon Foundation acts as a bridge between the wilderness and the surrounding world. Through free guided hikes and rides, volunteer stewardship events, and elementary school education programs, we connect people to the land, fostering a sense of stewardship and responsibility.

Public Events

Do you want to learn more about native plants or geology? Maybe you’re just looking for a good workout or a relaxing walk in nature. Browse our wonderful variety of wilderness activities: from fitness and yoga hikes to family strolls along Barbara’s Lake to mountain biking through Wood Canyon, there’s something for everyone.


Habitat Restoration

We couldn’t do the conservation work we do without volunteers.

Ready to get a little dirty while helping preserve this rich biodiverse habitat? Join us for a morning of maintaining trails, tending to the plants in our native nursery or stewarding one of our restoration sites by planting, weeding and/or watering.

No formal training required.  Let’s #KeepItWild.



Thanks to the generous support of donors and grantors, each school year Laguna Canyon Foundation brings second through fifth grade students from our twelve Title I partner schools and select local schools for a day on the trails. Using Next Generation Science Standards, our program offers the students both a healthy wilderness experience and real-life lessons to complement their school studies.

“In the end, we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand and we will understand only what we are taught.”
