Making Way For Wildlife
Restoration has begun on the 693 acre Mountain Meadow Preserve. Old agricultural buildings, many of which are not up to code, have been removed to make room for native plants, wildlife, and a potential science center! The 693 acres were recently purchased for wildlife habitat in Escondido by San Diego County Parks, US Navy, and The Escondido Creek Conservancy but over 225 acres of this land is an abandoned avocado grove. With the help of California Conservation Corps, donors, and many volunteers, we are restoring this area to provide more viable habitat for our native species.
