Laguna Hills is a beautiful community that is warm and full of positive people who love nature. People who live here are in close proximity to the beach, and are very involved in beach conservation and art. This city has a beautiful spirit of gentle stewardess towards our natural gems. We are about 4 miles from the Pacific Marine Center, where locals often volunteer and tend to stranded and sick marine life that wash up on shore. It is becoming a growing need as the ocean temperatures fluctuate into warmer and warmer temperatures. Our marine life is extremely valuable to everyone, and as our ecosystems continue to suffer due to human negligence, we will also suffer consequences shortly after. Living here, I have learned to exchange information with other locals and rise up together to do beach cleanups, volunteer work, and observing climate and marine life changes.
