Five Rescued by Helicopter in OC Parks
Please use good judgment when recreating in our parklands. Take into consideration the heat, time of day, your skill level, the trail conditions, etc. It's because of issues like that that Friends of Harbors, Beaches & Parks (FHBP) became a founding member of the Safe Trails Coalition.

Peters Canyon Bikeway Extension Approved
OCTA funded 13 bicycle improvement corridor projects with the County providing some matching funds. One that the Safe Trails Coalition supported was the Peters Canyon Bikeway Extension Project, which finishes a 3.1 mile section of Class 1 bikeway on the east side of Jamboree. The previous alignment would have been through Peters Canyon Regional Park. Friends of Harbors, Beaches & Parks (FHBP) was pleased to weigh in on this issue through the Coalition's efforts.

Looter Pleads Guilty for Stealing Park Artifacts
Our natural and cultural resources are important for the continued function and long term viability of our parks and preserves--not to mention our history. Please remember that all resources are protected. Education is critical and knowledge is important for the public. Leave the resources as you found them--or better yet, leave them better than you found them.



Please consider supporting our work. In addition to the above projects we also act as the fiscal agent for other community groups. Visit our Program section to learn more.

Your support is much appreciated.
