San Diego River Field Station at Lakeside
We are excited to announce the beginning of a new project: the San Diego River Field Station at Lakeside. Our goal is to take the 1908 Bostonia House that we own and repurpose it as a science education center where local students can come and learn science in a real-world setting.
This will be a major undertaking for the Conservancy so please help by donating today.
Arundo Control Project
Lakeside's River Park Conservancy, in partnership with the San Diego River Conservancy, is beginning a project to control arundo donax (giant weed) in the San Diego River watershed. We are applying for grants to remove arundo from private property in the watershed at no cost the property owner.
If you are a property owner interested in participating in this exciting opportunity, please see the Arundo Control Project page.
