Conservancy to host benefit

To mark its 23rd year of protecting and preserving the area’s wildlife habitat, the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy will hold a 1920s-style lawn party, “Reflections and Restoration,” from 3 p.m. to sunset on Oct. 11 at a historic ranch house near the lagoon, 14333 San Dieguito Road.

The event will also mark the 20th anniversary of the San Dieguito River Park, featuring live music by Dwight Worden’s Prairie Sky Band, hors d’oeuvres by Concept Catering by CK, local craft beers and wine, classic cars, a silent auction, and outdoor games. KUSI’s Sandra Moss will emcee the event.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $100 per person. Reservations must be made by Sept. 25 at (858) 755-6956 or visiting

The SDRVC, based in Del Mar, has worked for more than two decades to help realize the vision of the 94,000-acre San Dieguito River Park and Coast-to-Crest Trail through land acquisition, citizen involvement and public outreach. The Coast-to-Crest Trail stretches 55 miles from Volcan Mountain near Julian to the ocean between Del Mar and Solana Beach.

How Can You Help
The Friends of Crest Canyon help maintain the trails, control non-native plants and serve as the “eyes and ears” of the canyon, helping to safeguard this special corner of the River Park. If you are interested in joining the Friends or helping out at their next volunteer work event, please contact the Conservancy at (858) 674-2275, ext. 12 or
