Operation: Carbon Canyon

In 1965 a 114 acre area in Brea was chosen as the site for Carbon Canyon Regional Park. The local community was so proud to be included in the park system that at the Arbor Day celebration that year over 200 coastal redwood seedling trees were donated for the future park which opened to the public in 1975. Unlike most areas in this modern day of construction and development, Carbon Canyon has returned to its more natural state. Since the opening of the park more redwoods have been donated.

How many redwoods do you think there are today?

Hint: Pick up a map at the Ranger Station.
