Del Mar: Free San Dieguito Wetlands Project seminar offered April 27

A San Dieguito Wetlands Project educational seminar will be held on Wednesday, April 27, at 6 p.m. at Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe.

Many people living in the North County are not aware of the full extent of the San Dieguito River Park, which runs from Dog Beach in Del Mar to the Julian area. They may know the area around the Del Mar Fairgrounds, or the newly restored wetlands on both sides of I-5, or the portion of the park where the Morgan Run Golf Course is located, or Lake Hodges or maybe even San Pasqual Valley near the San Diego Wild Animal Park. This is only a portion of the San Dieguito River Park. The park extends all the way to Volcan Mountain, north of Julian.

Tom Golich

Speaker Tom Golich will share with you the extent and beauty of the river park. In addition, he will share the work of the three organizations that are responsible for the well being of the park. Golich will present a short DVD professionally produced almost 10 years ago showing the full extent of the park. He will then talk about the changes taken place in the park since the DVD was produced. There are now almost 40 miles of trails completed of the planned 55 miles of trails with connecting trails. The river park is a great place to walk, hike, bike or ride your horse in the natural beauty of the park. Many parts of the park on the eastern end look more like Northern California than San Diego County.

Golich’s association with the river park comes from having served on the river park’s Joint Powers Authority Board for four years while a member of the Solana Beach City Council, He served three years as the president of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy Board and presently as the chair of the Citizens Advisory Committee for the JPA Board.

This is a complimentary event. To RSVP, please call Morgan Run Club & Resort at 858-756-2471. For more information about the club, visit
