The next phase for El Moro Canyon — where trailers and mobile homes stood since the 1950s — is set to begin soon. Construction of the long-awaited El Moro Campground at Crystal Cove State Park is expected to begin after the July 4 weekend, Crystal Cove State Park Superintendent Ken Kramer said Monday. State Parks officials recently awarded a $12 million public works project contract to Los Angeles Engineering, Inc. for the conversion of the former El Morro Village trailer park site to a state park campground, beach, and picnic area.

Crystal Cove’s old beach cottages are slowly coming back to life. A few hundred supporters gathered at the Historic District of Crystal Cove State Park on Saturday for the opening and dedication of a visitors’ center, cultural center and rotating exhibit facility at the park. The event was hosted by the Crystal Cove Alliance, the park’s nonprofit cooperating association partner, whose mission is to restore and preserve the beach district’s cultural, natural and historical aspects to create an “old-fashioned” experience for future generations.

?Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.? ? Steven Wright ?Winter is my favorite season in Laguna? watching the birds change color and fall from the trees.? ? with apologies to David Letterman ? The beach at Crystal Cove has long been a favorite of mine, a magical walk that gives me great pleasure to share with Catharine (who first introduced me to one of her special hideaways), Cooper, and best friends. I generally prefer company, so it felt strange to find myself walking alone past the distinctive, renovated bungalows, unaccompanied save for a few joggers, sea birds and my thoughts.

Once again the watchdogs have dug up a juicy bone that will now be gnawed upon and picked clean. It all started about a month ago when Roger Butow and Clean Water Now! got a call from a couple in Emerald Bay who were wondering why barges were passing through their ocean view. Being an ex-Marine, Butow went out and looked for himself and ferreted out the little-noticed and long-since approved Newport Harbor dredging project, which began in April 2006, and is supposed to wind up by January.

The Laguna Beach City Council formed a subcommittee Tuesday to explore the effects that dumped sediment from an Upper Newport Bay dredging project may have on Laguna’s waters. Mayor Pro Tem Jane Egly and Councilman Kelly Boyd will make up the committee, which will aim to address questions and concerns of local water quality activists. Boyd said there is no specific plan of action for the committee, but he, Egly and City Manager Ken Frank will meet in the near future to hammer out the details of what needs to be done.

Crystal Cove State Park has closed nearly all its land to the public due to soot in the air from the ongoing wildfires in the region, park officials said today. The park, which extends on the coast between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach, closed its entire backcountry area early Monday morning, locking the gates to more than 2,000 acres of wilderness. The beach area remained open to the public, although peace officer Joel Yamasaki said turnout had been low for the last two days.
