Lakeside's River Park Conservancy

October 7, 2017

 

 

Who We Are:

 

Lakeside’s River Park Conservancy was established in 2001 as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, with the mission to preserve and restore the biological integrity and beauty of the San Diego River while integrating recreational, educational, and cultural opportunities for our region.

 

 

 

What We Do:

  1. Acquire and restore land along the San Diego River

  2. Develop trails to support outdoor recreation, education and environmental stewardship

  3. Prevent flooding along the San Diego River

  4. Improve water quality for our region

 

 

Our Impact:

  • In the past 16 years we have raised over $20 million in state funds to purchase four parcels of land totaling over 200 acres of property along the San Diego River.

  • We have restored over 150 acres of this property by removing hazardous waste and invasive species, reconfigured the riverbed to what it once was before heavy industry altered it, and planted over 50,000 California native trees and shrubs.

  • Developed over three miles of trail along the San Diego River, used by an estimated 30,000 people  every year.

  • Have provided nature and science education to 9,000 people through our River Keepers program for school children, our Girl, Boy & Eagle Scout programs, and to community members through our free Nature Outreach programs.

  • 100,000-plus volunteer hours have been donated by community members, corporate volunteers, the military, and elementary through college-aged students.  The River Park has 12 active volunteer programs people can join to share their talent, time and experience. 

 

Who We Serve:

Lakeside’s River Park Conservancy serves our volunteers, members, donors, trail users and organizations who support the preservation of the San Diego River, the development of trails, and the science education of our youth.
