Crystal Cove may not be in Laguna Beach, but it is of Laguna Beach, if measured by the Laguna Canyon Conservancy response to a program presented Monday by Laura Davick, Crystal Cove Alliance founder and director of external affairs.
The group applauded the accomplishments of the alliance, as outlined by Davick, and future plans.
Lagunans have been involved in the preservation of the cove since scores of them participated in the successful efforts in the mid-1990s to halt the state plan to develop a luxury resort on the site and to preserve the historic district on Laguna's door step. Davick wants to keep the relationship strong.
"We are trying to reach out to Laguna Beach," she said.
The alliance is working with the Boys & Girls Club, Laguna Art Museum and the Laguna Community Foundation, which has put together a $500,000 endowment fund.
