UC Irvine Tells Story of Public Lands in Orange County

This week, UC Irvine Libraries opened an exhibit entitled, “Striking a Balance: Conservation and Development in Orange County,” which explores the story of the many partners involved in preserving, managing, and protecting open green space in Orange County. As California’s smallest county, Orange, surprisingly, has the  largest amount of protected open space thanks to the sometimes contentious but successful engagement of public entities, private developers, citizens, and community organizations.

Laguna Greenbelt’s role in the formation of tens of thousands of acres in the region is also featured in the show.

The exhibit will be available through April 2017 in the Langson Library Muriel Ansley Reynolds Gallery and includes photographs, documents, and other items that recount the establishment of Orange County as a leader in open space preservation.
