The Escondido Creek Conservancy Is All Hands In


Supporting the people that make conservation happen.

With the support of our wonderful donors like you, The Escondido Creek Conservancy has had great success leveraging small private donations into millions of dollars in grants that have resulted in the protection of thousands of acres of conservation land in North San Diego County. 

When you donate to the operations of the Conservancy, to the All Hands In campaign, your gift directly supports:

  • Land acquisition, so the mission of the Conservancy is realized.
  • Compliance with Land Trust Alliance standards and practices, so the Conservancy meets or exceeds national standards and that our lands are fully protected in perpetuity.
  • Strategic leadership, so the Conservancy is an effective conservation leader.
  • Effective communications and outreach, so Conservancy supporters and the public learn about the Conservancy’s work and are called to action.

Seed the Future Fundraising Campaign

Help Seed the Future

The Conservancy’s outdoor education programming serves school children, older adults, and everyone in between. Our Seed the Future campaign will provide dedicated funding to launch new programs and sustain existing ones. Through our environmental education programs, events, and exhibits, we reach more than 15,000 people every year.

Acquiring habitat and restoring it is a crucial part of how we preserve nature. We also educate people of all ages about why wildlands are important. In the field and the classroom, our engaging outdoor and environmental education programs excite, inspire, and provide connections to nature that our future leaders need to become environmental stewards, so the land we protect will be cared for by generations to come.

Your donation to the Boulder Outlook campaign to build our office includes naming opportunities to honor a loved one or make a statement about your company or family’s support of conservation. Your donation will also rebuild our land fund (which is financing the remodel) so we can preserve more land in the future.

The Escondido Creek Conservancy Education Fund.

Our education programs are reaching more students now than ever before, but with greater impact comes greater costs. We are launching the Escondido Creek Education Fund to sustain our educational programs and continue connecting students to nature.

Help us Rev up restoration! With more land spread throughout the watershed, a land team of 3, and just under 3,000 acres to restore, we are in desperate need of another truck so our land team can divide and conquer! If anyone has connections with dealerships or auctions, knows someone who may be willing to donate their truck, or someone who would be willing to give us a great deal, please send that info our way!

For The Missing Lynx campaign, the Conservancy has prioritized land acquisitions in areas that are contiguous to other preserved lands in the Escondido Creek watershed. With your help, we can protect and preserve these “missing lynx” that are vital to the success of our native species so they can live, and live wild.

The Interpretive Center gives a voice to the Escondido Creek watershed, inspiring visitors to feel connected to nature, value open space and the creek, and is full of exciting exhibits, dynamic displays, and interactive activities for visitors to discover. It serves as a venue for fun nature-based programs and events. None of these things would be possible without donations from supporters like you.
