Friends of Del Mar Mesa to hold trail tours

By Suzanne Evans

Launching its website and presence on Linkedin, Facebook and Wikepedia, Friends of Del Mar Mesa are speeding up plans to raise public awareness of its commitment to preserve the mesa’s natural beauty and habitat by involving the community in press events and trail excursions.

Trail mixers for hikers will include tours led by a naturalist around the preserve to encourage involvement in protecting the wildlife refuge and ecological preserve’s endangered habitat, scrub oak chaparral, vernal pools, vegetation, and sensitive species, Friends’ president Lisa Ross said at the Del Mar Mesa board’s May 9 meeting.

Owners at Meadows Del Mar, a community of 134 home sites adjacent to a championship golf course, are signing up at a rapid rate to participate in Friends’ activities, Meadows representative and board member Amy Wood said, noting her hope for “100 percent participation.”

In other matters, the board unanimously voted to install an all-way stop sign at the corner of Del Vino and Rancho Toyon roads, to prevent accidents from people who speed through, not yielding at that intersection.  Vice chair Elizabeth Rabbitt and Mel Melstein, representative of District One Councilmember Sherri Lightner, will work together on a letter to the city requesting the stop sign.
