Continuing the legacy of over 30 years of saving our beautiful Laguna Canyon and open spaces...

January 2024 

Dear Laguna Canyon Conservancy members,

On behalf of the Laguna Canyon Conservancy’s Board of Directors, we hope that the new year is going well for you, and it will be healthy and successful.  Already this year LCC Board members have been involved in local issues that could impact Laguna Canyon and surrounding open space. Letters expressing concerns and even warnings have been submitted to Laguna Beach city council meetings, Design Review Board hearings and at times to local media. Please check out some of those letters posted on our website. We encourage members to express their concerns also, more voices will get more attention. After all the environment belongs to all of us and we must be good stewards of it.


Laguna Canyon Conservancy has been a presenter of educational programs for many years and will continue to bring more interesting programs to our membership. Earlier this month we hosted a zoom meeting with four experts about trees throughout Laguna Beach, in Laguna Canyon and along Laguna Canyon Road. Please check out the program posted on the LCC website; many people tuned in.


This past September, LCC hosted an in person joint environmental groups dinner meeting that was a big success. Seven groups presented their mission statements, current projects, and issues they wanted to make others aware of. What was also clear at this meeting for LCC, and all groups, is that we must engage more young people interested in continuing the goals of conservation and preservation. More joint meetings are being planned. If you have suggestions for speakers or topics, please let me know.

January is renewal month for dues if you are a continuing member, a member from past years or a first-time member. We are grateful to have you participate in helping the Laguna Canyon Conservancy’s mission to protect and preserve the open space in and around Laguna Canyon. Dues are only $25 per year for January 1 to December 31. Any additional donations are appreciated and can be designated for a specific use or cause. 

There is an online method to renew your dues, each member must complete a separate registration and payment. The system does not provide for couples to submit at the same time unfortunately. If you do not wish to pay by credit card, you can print a membership form from the website and mail it with a check payable to: Laguna Canyon Conservancy, P.O. Box 1383, Laguna Beach, CA 92652. Please view the website for coming meetings and information on past meetings. 

Warmest regards and many thanks,
