Miss the Volunteer Fair? Still Want to Volunteer in Uhills?

 A big THANK YOU to all who attended the Volunteer Fair and signed up to volunteer. We look forward to making the Volunteer Fair an annual event. If you missed the Fair and would like to volunteer in University Hills, we want you!

Be Prepared: Know Your Evacuation Zone

Last year, at National Night Out, the UCI Emergency Management (EM) Department presented the newly established evacuation zones for University Hills and provided resources and education to residents on evacuation procedures through the Know Your Zone campaign. The campaign focuses on the importance of knowing what zone you are in during an emergency or evacuation to increase your preparedness and ultimately increase your chances of survival. This will also be good information to have if you plan to attend the Let's Talk Earthquake Preparedness, scheduled to be presented by UCI Emergency Management on May 18. Identify your zone on the map below:

UCI Emergency Management has developed evacuation signage that will be installed soon. If you would like a Know Your Zone refrigerator magnet that corresponds to the zone you live in, please visit the Irvine Campus Housing Authority office during normal business hours. Magnets will be available by the end of the week.

New StoryWalk Book: "The Curious Garden"

Explore University Hills' March StoryWalk® book, The Curious Garden. The Uhills Entertainment Committee displays a new book the first weekend of every month. Your StoryWalk® adventure begins at the entrance to Vista Bonita Park, near Vista Bonita Dr.

How to Co-Exist With Coyotes This Spring

We’re in the final days of the typical annual breeding time for coyotes. Coyotes are now scouting out den sites for birthing and raising their pups. Please remember how to live here safely without fear. Go to https://projectcoyote.org for more info and handouts.

Video Recording from our Coyote Talk with Coyote Project Experts

1. Do not feed coyotes! Look around your yard and remove attractants. Water for drinking, accessible fruit and nut trees, pet food, and accessible food waste all need to be removed or protected so coyotes can’t get to them.

2. If you have small pets that you let into your yard, consult an expert to fortify and secure your yard or better yet get a well-built catio or dog walk to secure your pets while they’re unsupervised outside.

3. If you walk your pets, Irvine law and common sense say they should be on at most a 6-7 foot leash. Do not wear headphones or earbuds. Pay attention while walking through the community.

4. Learn how to properly haze! Hazing works when it’s consistently and creatively applied by all who come into contact with coyotes.
