CANCELLED – Trish Boaz “The San Dieguito Valley River Conservancy: From A Vision To Reality”
April 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us for our interesting monthly program and refreshments. There is a social period beginning at 6:30 pm with the meeting and program getting under way promptly at 7:00 pm.
The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy is supported by more than 1800 enthusiastic members. They partner with the San Dieguito River Park Authority, other non-profit organizations including Palomar Audubon Society, citizens, landowners, governments, and other stakeholders to conserve our natural resources, offer education about the River Valley to our community, and provide recreational opportunities throughout the San Dieguito River watershed. Since 1986, the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy has been committed to acquiring lands within the San Dieguito River Park watershed (which consists of 94,000 acres) and the completion of the 70 mile “Coast to Crest Trail” from Del Mar to Volcan Mountain near Julian. Thus, turning a goal from a vision to a reality. Over 75% of the River Park land is located in areas served by our Palomar Audubon Society. Trish will talk about the latest and greatest happenings with the Conservancy including updates on acquisitions, the Coast to Crest Trail, and the Citizen Science Program.
Trish Boaz was hired in 2013 as SDRVC’s Executive Director and brings over 30 years experience in conservation and environmental protection, as well as established positive relationships with many of the Conservancy’s partners. She previously worked for the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation, where she oversaw the implementation of the Multiple Species Conservation Program and managed the award-winning County Trails Program. She also coordinated the County’s acquisition of over7,000 acres of open space lands. Trish also volunteers as a crisis interventionist with the City of San Diego Police Department.
Mark your calendars for this one. See you there!
