Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve ASCE OC Hike

By: Gary Gilbert, P.E., G.E. On Saturday November 21st, students from Cal State Fullerton and University of California, Irvine joined OC Branch member on a morning nature walk in the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve.  The hike was led by an Orange County Parks ranger, and she explained the purpose of the different habitats and why they are so important to the health of many species that live or travel through the nature reserve.  Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve is a key location for birds migrating with the changes in seasons.  If you are a bird lover, there is a portion of the Nature Preserve that is the perfect place to take a picture of your favorite migratory bird.  The ranger also showed us where burrowing owls have been known to live in the recent past and there used to be a bobcat that lived near the Peter & Mary Muth Interpretive Center.
