1st Annual Santa Ana River Trail Bike Ride & Festival was a success!

Way to go to our friends at Riverside County Parks for spearheading such a successful event! There was an amazingly diverse turnout that ranged from professional bicyclists, to little kids with training wheels, to friends on a tandem bike. It was truly heartwarming to see riders of all abilities and ages enjoying the Trail!  RLC staff thoroughly enjoyed tabling the event and sharing information about RLC and our native plant activity.

Welcome Michael!

We are pleased to welcome Michael Viramontes as the most recent addition to our growing Stewardship team.

Michael has 3 years of experience leading volunteer-based habitat restoration projects in California. He attended San Jose State University where he received his B.S. in Environmental Studies with a concentration in natural resource management. Before starting his work with RLC, Michael worked at several environmental non-profits where he developed his passion for learning about California native plants. As a Land Steward, Michael will assist with the stewardship and restoration of lands managed by RLC.
"I grew up without being able to spend much time in the great outdoors, but always took every chance I got to explore California's wild landscapes. Although I wanted more, I'm glad my deficit pushed me into environmental conservation."  - Michael
