Outdoor Education Elevated Fundraising Event

The Escondido Creek Conservancy is hosting a family-friendly outdoor festival at the Mountain Meadow Preserve on Saturday, April 6, 2024, with a rain date set for Saturday, April 13, 2024. This event is a fundraiser to support the Conservancy’s outdoor education programs that serve youth and adults in North San Diego County. Through the Conservancy’s programs, events, and exhibits, it annually reaches more than 15,000 people, many of whom are from disadvantaged communities. Festival activities will be centered at the Conservancy’s office on the Preserve. The Mountain Meadow Preserve was created by a partnership of the Conservancy, the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, and San Diego County Parks and Recreation.

The day will be replete with nature-based activities for all ages and physical abilities, children and adults. Participants can choose to join, at their leisure, a guided 3-mile and/or 1-mile interpretive walk, children’s stations (where children and their families can meet Conservancy educators and participate in outdoor learning), a silent auction, live animals, nature journaling, lunch, and more. The Mountain Meadow Preserve includes breathtaking vistas and dramatic boulders; on a clear day, snow can be seen on the local mountains. Those who prefer to relax and enjoy the view from the Conservancy’s new office are welcome to sit on the Conservancy’s veranda or explore nature-based booths to learn more about local flora and fauna.

This is a fund-raising event. Your ticket helps support the important work of Conservancy educators to provide opportunities for outdoor learning.

Welcome to the Watershed Hikes

Join us for an easy introductory hike on a Conservancy preserve! Meet Conservancy staff, board members, and volunteers while learning about current Conservancy projects. These hikes will rotate around the watershed, so if you join us every month, by the end of the 2023 you will be so bursting with knowledge that you could lead the walks in 2024! The hikes are free but space is limited. Be sure to register on Eventbrite!
