The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to preserving, protecting and restoring natural and cultural resources within the 55-mile long San Dieguito watershed. The headwaters flow from springs on Volcan Mountain north of Julian and meander some 55 miles through conifer and oak woodlands, grasslands, and chaparral to the San Dieguito Lagoon between Del Mar and Solana Beach. The Conservancy practices sustainable natural and cultural resource management and provides recreational activities and environmental education to the greater San Diego community. The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy is supported by more than 1,200 Conservancy members from all over San Diego County. We are a collaborative organization that partners with the greater San Diego Community, other non-profit organizations, local park agencies and the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority (River Park). We mobilize hundreds of local volunteers to restore habitat, lead hikes and educate youth to enhance our residents’ quality of life.
