Bolsa Chica Land Trust

The Bolsa Chica Land Trust was formed in 1992 by a small group of Californians who believed that one of the last standing wetland ecosystems in Southern California was worth preserving for future generations. The Land Trust now includes more than 5000 members from throughout California and twenty other states.

2016 Wings Over Bolsa Calendar Now Available


I♥OC Giving Day is back!  Join us on April 27th and 28th to show your love for Bolsa Chica. The Orange County Community Foundation is once again hosting i♥oc Giving Day on their secure website.  It’s another 30 hours to give where your heart lives starting at 6am on April 27th through noon April 28th.  OCCF will also be providing a bonus fun and prizes that non-profits can win to sweeten the deal!

By choosing to donate to the Bolsa Chica Land Trust during this online fundraiser, you not only support the Land Trust’s mission of acquisition, preservation, restoration, and education at Bolsa Chica, you also show all of Orange County how much Bolsa Chica is loved.  2015 was a great year for us (#1 environmental non-profit, thank you!) and this year we want to do even better with a goal of raising $20,000.  Let’s make it happen!

Donating is easy, safe and secure, and a donation from each individual helps us earn prizes!  Starting at 6am April 27th through noon April 28th go to  the Bolsa Chica Land Trust’s unique page to donate directly to us.  Uncomfortable with computers?  No worries, call us at the Land Trust office (714) 846-1001 and we will walk you through it.  Or come by the office between 10am and 4pm and we will help you in person (and you can use one of our computers).  The office is located at 5200 Warner Ave. Suite 108, Huntington Beach.

Want to help in other ways?  Spread the word!  Tell your friends and family about i♥oc Giving Day, use the hashtag #iheartoc and #iheartbolsachica, and tag Bolsa Chica Land Trust on social media.

Our Mission


The Land Trust is working to acquire and protect the last threatened 11 acres at Bolsa Chica to save a unique archaeological site and precious open space habitat.


The Land Trust’s Bolsa Chica Stewards have been working since 1996 on the Mesa habitat restoration project. Over 15,000 volunteers have helped heal our local environment.


Bolsa Chica needs constant and well planned care to keep its habitats functioning and healthy.  Saving it is just the start, caring for it is part of our commitment.


The Land Trust conducts educational programs to build awareness about the role of the Bolsa Chica wetlands system in the natural and urban environment, and tell the story of its rich history.
