Conservancy to Host Benefit for Local Wildlife
You are invited to support local wildlife at The Escondido Creek Conservancy’s benefit, “Corridors”. The event will be held on the George Sardina, MD Preserve in Escondido on May 30th, 2020 from 3:00 pm-7:00 pm. Early bird ticket prices start at $125 per person. VIP pricing and corporate sponsorships are also available. All proceeds help continue the Conservancy’s conservation and education programs in North County San Diego.
Join us for hayride tours of the preserve, local beer and wine, music, delicious artisan pizza, and an intimate wildlife encounter. This outdoor event takes place on George Sardina, MD Preserve which was protected in 2019 as part of the Conservancy’s highly successful Save 1000 Acres campaign to help create permanent wildlife corridors for mule deer, mountain lions, and other local wildlife. The 282-acre parcel was previously proposed for development and has been heavily impacted by prior uses. This is a unique opportunity to see a property in the beginning stages of habitat restoration and talk to local wildlife experts about the importance of conservation.
Participants will have the opportunity to hear from non-profit partner Lumbercycle about how the Conservancy is recycling non-native trees to help fight climate change, as well as the opportunity to meet rescued birds of prey from Sky Hunters. The Mountain Lion Foundation and a UC Davis field scientist will also be present to discuss how the Conservancy’s work supports the research underway on mountain lion populations in Southern California—which are at risk of local extinction.
We encourage you to share your passion for this work and invite family, friends, and neighbors to support the Conservancy’s work which has helped protect over 8,000 acres from development and provides outdoor education to thousands of watershed residents, including every third grader in the Escondido Union School District. Only 25 early bird tickets are available, so don’t wait to reserve your spot!
