Hello, Bolsa Chica Land Trust Supporters!!
Do you enjoy walking the Mesa trail early in the morning with the dew covering the spider webs? Or right at sunset to watch the sun sink into the horizon and the Mesa glow with orange? Do you come to watch the terns and pelicans dive into the water after the schools of fish swimming in the bays? Do you feel the excitement of finding a Western Snowy Plover nest with a fluffy downy chick right beyond the protective fence? Have you been lucky enough to watch an Osprey snatch a fish out of the water or catch a glimpse of the elusive coyote?
But why do other people come back over and over to Bolsa Chica? Why should YOU love Bolsa Chica? Here are 10 reasons to ♥ Bolsa Chica (read the full post ’10 Reasons to Love Bolsa Chica’ here).
- Family. “You can come and enjoy with your family”- Devyn Jr. Steward.
- It’s FREE! What more is there to say?
- It’s a wetland.
- Cultural site/history.
And one last reason to love Bolsa Chica: Because of everyday people like YOU who banded together to protect this natural treasure; now everyone can love Bolsa Chica too!
All this and more you can experience at Bolsa Chica throughout the year. You can see the Mesa change from dormant browns to lively greens during the seasons, observe the migratory species of birds as they stop to rest, and escape the stresses of everyday life as you take a stroll on the many paths that criss-cross through the Reserve.
Feeling Inspired? Want to spread the Love? Join us for another great I ♥ OC Giving Day!
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 iheartoc.org 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!

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 iheartoc.org site and donate on the Bolsa Chica Land Trust’s unique page.
