Del Mar Mesa board elects directors, officers of Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve

By Suzanne Evans

Del Mar Mesa board members unanimously elected Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve directors and officers at their Nov. 8 meeting. Directors of the board’s newly formed non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, elected for two-year terms, include Angelika Drake, Preston Drake, Gary Levitt, Ken London, Paul Metcalf, Trey Nolan, Bill Woolson, and Lisa Ross.

Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve officers elected for one-year terms are Lisa Ross, president; Ken London, secretary; and Preston Drake, treasurer.

The mission of the Friends of Del Mar Mesa is “to protect and preserve the habitat, ecosystems, and recreational aspects of the Del Mar Mesa through habitat restoration and enhancement, recreational support, stewardship, research, and education. We support educational and recreational activities that foster an appreciation of the natural environment of Del Mar Mesa.”

“There will also be a protection plan for vernal pools,” said chair Gary Levitt.

Among tasks Friends will undertake are trails enhancement, fencing materials upgrades, and natural habitat restoration. Also included in the mission is “the whole mesa, not just the preserve,” Levitt said, noting, “Anyone who wants to join Friends is welcome.”

The new Friends board of directors approved the organization’s draft bylaws. Next, Preston Drake, treasurer, will file for 501c non-profit tax-exempt status with the IRS and State, register with the State and State Attorney General, and open a bank account for the organization.
