The O’Neill Oaks Preserve is a 116-acre parcel located northwest of the City of Rancho Santa Margarita in Trabuco Canyon, and immediately north of O’Neill Regional Park and Trabuco Creek.
The acquisition of this preserve contributes to the EMP’s goal of joining together adjacent open space areas in the foothills, while at the same time limiting urban encroachment. Major mammals expected to use these corridors include mule deer, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes and gray foxes.
