LAGUNA CANYON CONSERVANCY
Continuing the legacy of over 30 years of saving our beautiful Laguna Canyon and open spaces...
Dear Laguna Canyon Conservancy Members,
With 2022 fully underway yet unfortunately still in a time of pandemic, the Board members of the LCC and I wish you a healthy and successful year to come.
The LCC continues to monitor local issues that would impact Laguna canyon and surrounding open space and when appropriate, voices any concerns at public meetings or by writing letters. Plans for the coming months will include general member meetings with pertinent speakers held via Zoom until it is safer to meet in person. We miss being able to gather and will again as soon as possible!
Other LCC plans for the coming year include the awarding of a Laguna Canyon Conservancy education scholarship to a 2022 graduating Laguna Beach senior who has shown commitment and service to preserving the open space environment. It is particularly important we try to engage more young people interested in continuing our organization’s mission.
This summer the Laguna Canyon Conservancy will join with other local environmentally concerned organizations to create a coalition that plans to interact more with the public at outdoor events.
This year we will complete the submission of the extensive records collection of long-time LCC President Carolyn Wood to the University of California, Irvine archiving department. There will then eventually be a permanent history on file at UCI Library of the beginnings and achievements of the LCC that led to the founding of the critically important Laguna Canyon Foundation.
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 continue the Laguna Canyon Conservancy’s mission to protect and preserve the environment in and around Laguna Canyon. The LCC Board of Directors voted to raise the dues a modest $5 to $25 per year and funds will support the organization and environmental causes. If you wish to make an additional donation, it will be 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 to our mailing address: Laguna Canyon Conservancy (LCC), P.O. Box 1383, Laguna Beach, CA 92652.
If you have suggestions for speakers or topics that would interest you, please let me know. You can email me at this address or call me at (949) 887-3247. Please check the website for coming meetings and information on past meetings. www.LagunaCanyonConservancy.org Thank you for being a part of the Laguna Canyon Conservancy. I wish you a healthy and wonderful 2022!
