    Hosted by Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), these free excursions will take place on various open space Preserves that are permanently protected. This is your opportunity to have special access to some of Orange County's pristine open space and enjoy the natural landscape.

    Participants must be 12 years and over. All hikers must sign a liability waiver and minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All riders must provide their own horse. Space is limited. For more information, contact Marissa Espino at 714.560.5607. To learn more, visit www.preservingourlegacy.org.

    OC Go, also known as Measure M, is orange county's half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements. The voluntary acquisition of open space properties and restoring of natural habitat enables OCTA to receive streamlined environmental approvals for the 13 OC Go freeway improvement projects. As a result, the freeway projects will progress quicker and more efficiently, and result in more comprehensive environmental mitigation.
