Nature-lovers invited to join San Dieguito river valley program


Enrollment is open (and limited to just 25 participants) in The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy’s 2015 Exploring Our Sense of Place Program.

Participants experience the San Dieguito River Valley and watershed in all seasons, following its path from Volcan Mountain in Julian to North Beach in Del Mar.

Eight excursions are held monthly from September through May, starting with a welcome reception at the Del Mar Powerhouse, followed by seven outings with experts in a variety of topics including Mammals and Tracking, Native Americans, Birds of Bernardo Bay, Geology, Chaparral and Water Resources, Piedras Pintadas Botany and the recent multimillion-dollar Wetland Restoration Project at the San Dieguito Lagoon.

Recognizing the importance of connecting people with nature, “reflection time” is part of each event.

A Graduation Luncheon is served at the San Dieguito Lagoon at the end of the program. More than 175 Explorers have graduated from the program. Many continue to participate in ESP Alumni hikes and educational experiences.
