Marsh Guidelines

Help to preserve this haven for wildlife and people by following these rules:

  • Please stay on marked trails or roads at all times.

  • Do not collect or disturb the wildlife, including flowers or other plant materials, animals, birds, insects, rocks or any element within the Sanctuary. Harvesting of berries is allowed along Riparian View.

  • Smoking, fires, and camping are not permitted. Please carry all trash out with you, including food scaps.

  • Please do not feed the wildlife.

  • Boating, swimming and wading are prohibited.

  • Dogs and other pets - leashed or unleashed - are not permitted on the property.

  • Hunting, fishing, trapping, and firearms are prohibited.

  • Please obey all trail signs.

  • Do not abandon or release any wild or domestic animals. Their presence will disrupt the delicate balance of the Sanctuary’s native wildlife.

  • Horseback and bicycle riding is not permitted.

  • Alcohol beverages are prohibited.

  • Organized events are prohibited without prior approval by Irvine Ranch Water District.

  • For lost and found items, contact Sea and Sage Audubon House at 949-261-7963.
