Come pick your own oranges at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center! Learn how we are cultivating an ecosystem that provides habitat for wildlife as well as food for human beings! Bring the entire family and discover how we can get endangered bird species and predatory insects to manage pests on our fruit trees. Learn about soil stewardship at our compost lab and discover how we are preventing tons of greenhouse gases from entering our atmosphere through our compost program.
For $15.00 you get a canvas harvest bag to fill with oranges and lemons to take home and enjoy!
ADOPT A TREE
Do something special for the environment, education, and celebrate a piece of Orange County heritage by adopting one or more of the citrus trees in the Pankey ranch camp grove as we replant after the fires. As one of the last groves in Orange County, your support can help these trees grow and thrive.
You can name and help maintain a healthy tree through the care by our naturalists as they mulch, water, prune and protect against insects.
It will take a village to restore our grove and Ranch area with tender loving care, positive vibes, and fun service work! This event is recurring through December and we hope you'll join us to continue our restoration of this incredible living classroom which supports the outdoor learning of thousands of school children each year.
