Crystal Cove Environmental Study Loop

Last friday we had the opportunity to take part in the dedication of the Environmental Study Loop, that came about to Crystal Cove State Park through a gift from Michael and Tricia Berns of Laguna Beach. It was a wonderful event and our undergraduate interns in the Center for Environmental Biology were key features along the path as members of Crystal Cove Alliance, friends of the park and members of the environmental community in Orange County visited this new facility. We have research developing in the loop and new education programs planned that highlight the inter-related programs of UCI, the State Park and the interconnected open-spaces of Orange County.
