Revisionist History



Imagine my surprise riding to the Nix Nature Center when I came upon Laguna Coast Wilderness Parks new brochure/map.

According to OC Parks history, LCWP was only established through the goodwill of the Irvine Company. There is no mention of Laguna Greenbelt/Canyon Conservancy, no mention of the march, no mention of Mr. Dilley and other leaders. Only how wonderful and environmental the Irvine Company is.

I for one – appreciate all you and others have done. This land was not “given” it was saved through you and your peers. I hope someone exposes OC Parks for this revisionist history. I for one will be writing to OC Parks Director Mark Denny and Supervisor Pat Bates to complain about this injustice!
