Conservation Conversation

Once each quarter, the Conservancy in partnership with Olivenhain Municipal Water District hosts an educational community event. These conversations take place at the Elfin Forest Interpretive Center and cover topics relevant to local wildlife, habitats, and conservation efforts. 

Our next Conservation Conversation is taking place on January 19 from 6:00-7:00 PM.

Join landscape designer, Andrea Doonan, as we dive into the Watershed Approach to Landscape Design. Andrea will discuss how on-site water harvesting techniques work seamlessly with your native garden and provide other benefits such as keeping our waterways clean.

Andrea is the owner of Andrea Doonan Horticulture + Design, certified arborist, immediate past president of APLD San Diego and current communications chair. She is passionate about sustainable landscaping and creating beautiful functional spaces that connect people to nature.

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! We will take a break in summer. The hikes are free but space is limited. Be sure to register on Eventbrite!

Upcoming Welcome to the Watershed Hikes:
January 7 – Mountain Meadow Preserve
February 4 – Bottle Peak
March 4 – Location TBD
