Do you work with a school, club, or organization that would like to learn more about our local ecology, wildlife, or other environmental issues? ICRE has a team of biologist that are experts in these fields, among many others and the team is always willing to share their knowledge! ICRE has given lectures, talks, and tours to numerous local organizations to help increase awareness about the unique ecosystem we have here in Southern California. To list a few lectures ICRE has given in the past:

Reptiles and Amphibians of Southern California
Restoration Ecology: Fairview Park, Costa Mesa
Southern California’s Southwestern Pond Turtle: A Population Study
Southern California’s Species on the Brink!

And many more! For inquiries on more lecture topics, please contact

While ICRE operates almost entirely on volunteer efforts, we are always in desperate need of funding to continue running our organization effectively, and to continue our research endeavors. For this reason we do ask that if you book a speaker from ICRE, a donation of twenty dollars or more for each presentation is appreciated. However, if financial resources are a major problem, we are always willing to discuss other options and work something out.

Ready to book a speaker? Or want to know more before booking one? Do not hesitate to send us an email at and we can answer any questions you may have!
