While visiting Irvine Regional Park, the very first regional park in the State of California and home to some of Orange County’s oldest coast live oak and California sycamore trees, students will hike through various native oak, riparian, and coastal sage scrub ecosystems. They will also visit the OC Zoo which focuses on animals and plants native to the southwestern United States. Along the way, they will make observations, record and analyze data based on the structures of living things throughout the park to develop a deeper understanding of therole these structures play in plant and animal survival.
