Tour the Newland House Museum from Noon to 4PM At 19820 Beach Boulevard. It’s
the oldest residence built in the City of Huntington Beach. The Newland House was built in 1898 for Huntington Beach pioneers William and Mary Newland and their ten children. The original Newland Ranch extended from Beach Boulevard to Magnolia Street and from Yorktown Avenue south to Atlanta Avenue, for a total of 500+ acres. At that time, the Newland family planted lima beans, sugar beets, celery and later chili peppers. For group tours, contact Maureen Rivers at (714) 960-0055.
This event is from 9AM to Noon.
Work with the enthusiastic staff to help restore the natural habitat of the Bolsa Chica Land Trust. Get rid of trash and non-native plant species all the while enjoying a beautiful day in the sun.

After the restoration activities, be sure to visit the interpretive center which houses two touch tanks containing coral, hermit crabs and starfish. Service days are the first Sunday and the third Saturday of each month. Please “dress for mess” with long pants and closed toe shoes (like sneakers) and plenty of sunscreen.
