Between 12 - 6 million years ago, fine-grained sediments accumulated underwater in depths up to 5000ft to create the "Monterey Formation". Beginning 4 million years ago and still continuing today, this area was uplifted. Next time you go for a beach walk, take a moment to think about how ancient these rock formations are at here #crystalcovestatepark Pictured here is an example of the Monterey Formation at the northern most end of our beach at Treasure Cove. #montereyformation #geology #castateparks

Another beautiful day at the Cove #crystalcovestatepark

Competition for a mate is not as violent as you might expect for the venomous rattlesnakes! These two males are attempting to assert their dominance in a wrestling match, rising up to see who is bigger. The males perform this mating ritual to win over the female snake, who was probably waiting near by. This rare sighting occured along the rocky shoreline near Pelican Point last week. Check out the NatGeo link in our bio for a video & more info on this species! Thanks to @stellashaophotography for capturing this awesome photo of the snakes in action! #repost

"It is amazing! Ran into two rattlesnakes mating at crystal cove state beach!" #crystalcovestatepark #snakes #rattlesnake #nativespecies #reproduction

Camp Cove 2017:  Last week 100 underserved elementary, middle and high school students from our neighboring Santa Ana community came to Crystal Cove State Park for a week long summer camp, led by our team of Interpreters, Lifeguards and Peace Officers. The goal is to expose these kids to our park's natural resources, teach them about career opportunities and, perhaps most importantly, get them more comfortable being in the ocean. By Friday, almost every kid got their hair wet and braved the big surf to go swimming with our lifeguards! Thank you to all of the donors who helped the Crystal Cove Conservency fund this program. And special thanks to all of our partners that helped make this week extra special for the campers: CA Fish & Wildlife, Newport Landing Whale Watching, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, Concordia University Irvine - Marine Lab, CA State Park K-9 Unit and The Santa Ana Police Athletic & Activity League. #crystalcovestatepark

The Tabacco Hornworm (Manduca sexta) is a non-native species that can be found living on the invasive tabacco plants in the park. This worm will turn into a large "hawk moth", aka Carolina Spinx moth. The entire life cycle lasts about 40 days. #insects #worm #nature #crystalcovestatepark #nonnative

This is a Red Diamond Rattlesnake (Crotalus ruber). It is 1 of 3 species of rattlesnakes commonly called "diamondbacks". These snakes belong to a unique group of venomous snakes known as pit vipers. They are generally not agressive towards people and will usually retreat if they feel threatened, but be sure to always give snakes plenty of space. Please stay alert and always watch your step while visiting the park. #rattlesnake #reddiamondrattlesnake #crystalcovestatepark
