Come enjoy the great outdoors and help the San Diego River Park Foundation to restore an oak woodland along a free-flowing mountain stream. Volunteers will help create habitat for wildlife and keep water clean by removing invasive plants, watering native plants, and more! This is a great opportunity to give back by getting your hands dirty, learn about local ecology and habitat restoration science, look for wildlife, and spend time in nature.
SPECIAL BONUS: Volunteers from the San Diego Tracking Team will join us! Before we get to work, they will briefly discuss some tracking basics and then lead us on a brief walk looking for tracks, scat, and other evidence from animals in the Preserve.
