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.

Boulder Outlook: Replenish Our Land Fund

All donations received go directly into the Land Fund enabling the Conservancy to preserve more watershed land and finish the development of Boulder Outlook.

In 2018, the Escondido Creek Conservancy acquired the first 700 acres towards our Save 1000 Acres campaign! The Boulder Outlook property came with two buildings; an old agricultural building, and a farm duplex which we have been transforming into a multi-functional Conservancy Headquarters, including a native plant nursery, outdoor event space, conservation research facility, and a home base to engage the community and share our land conservation efforts!

Architectural designer Drew Hubbell of Hubbell & Hubbell Architects, with help from landscape architect Glenn Schmitt, has designed an environmentally conscious and fire-safe headquarters that compliments San Diego County’s beautiful natural surroundings. Spectacular mountain views can be seen from the future event space, and boulders of incredible scale dot the property providing a natural path between the office, event space, native plant nursery, pond, and future research facility.

Boulder Outlook will be the Conservancy’s home for outdoor education, land conservation events and will enable our passionate staff and volunteer team to continue pushing forward on our mission to preserve and protect the Escondido Creek watershed while enhancing the lives of the people and wildlife who live there.

We were recently awarded a $75,000 matching grant from the Parker Foundation plus $25K from an anonymous additional match to support the renovation of the Boulder Outlook property! Thank you grantors for the challenge and donors for helping us exceed this goal!

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.
