The Watershed Explorers Program enables students to visit different areas in the San Dieguito River Park, see wildlife, learn about diverse habitat types from forests to wetlands, and learn about the importance of the cultural and natural resources of the watershed.

“Instructors help students recognize the role they play in keeping the natural community a thriving ecosystem, and new training resources made possible by this grant will help volunteers and docents enhance the quality of the outdoor experiences,” said Trish Boaz, executive director of the conservancy.

The program is aimed at students from low-income and park-poor communities.
