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

Dear Laguna Canyon Conservancy Members,

With 2022 coming to a close, the Board members of the LCC and I wish you a healthy and happy holiday season. 

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. 

Other LCC plans for the coming year include the awarding of a Laguna Canyon Conservancy education scholarship to a 2023 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.

We are in the final stages of the organization and 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. Membership dues a modest $25 per year and funds will support the organization and environmental causes. We are the most affordable conservation dues in town, as we plan to expand and have more events this year. 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.  Thank you for being a part of the Laguna Canyon Conservancy. I wish you a healthy and wonderful new year, 2023!

Warmest regards,


Gayle Waite, President
