The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy will celebrate its 30th Anniversary this year with several major events planned, including the annual River Valley Fest in October.
The nonprofit was founded in July 1986 by a group of citizens from the San Diego coast who wanted to protect the San Dieguito River watershed.
The organization is dedicated to preserving, protecting and restoring natural and cultural resources within the 55-mile-long watershed. Over the past 30 years it has helped acquire thousands of acres of land.
Volunteers are close to completing the entire length of the 70-mile Coast to Crest Trail that stretches from North Beach in Del Mar to Volcan Mountain near Julian. Forty-five miles are already open to the public.
Events to mark the 30 anniversary include:
- Earth Month Hike and Restoration at Crest Canyon — April 16, 8:30 am. A family-friendly hike through Crest Canyon and learn about all the restoration work that’s been done over the years. More information at sdrvc.org.
- Take it Outside California — April 30, 9 a.m. A moderate hike through Del Dios Gorge to the Lake Hodges Dam. Register online at https://form.jotform.com/60624615655154 for the free hike.
