Learn through OCRP


Our Education Committee works hard to make sure the best educational materials are available within the park. Please browse around the materials below.

If there is something specific you have questions about or you are interested in joining our committee, please reach out to the Education Committee Chair, Lizz Flowers at lizzflowers@ocriverpark.org.


Our Ecology & Habitats

Our park is unlike that of any other — we maintain a thousand acre-stretch of contiguous wetland, upland, and riparian habitats with trails adjacent to the Newport Bay and the lower Santa Ana River.
