Friends of Del Mar Mesa held its first event, a Trail Mixer, on June 9. Trail Mixers are one of the ways the organization plans to bring the 2,000-acre semi-rural community that borders Carmel Valley on the south and east together and to raise awareness about the trails and protected open space within the community’s boundaries.

“We hope to not only to raise awareness about the special environment of Del Mar Mesa, but to raise money to fund projects that will help conservation efforts in Del Mar Mesa Preserve, maintain our 10-mile trail system, and provide enhancements to our future neighborhood park,” said Friends President Lisa Ross.

After a welcome and trail orientation, hikers, bikers, trail runners and horse riders from the community, embarked on a mile hike into Del Mar Mesa Preserve.  The group reflected the diversity of recreational users in Del Mar Mesa.

Also attending were Les Braund, president of Friends of Los Penasquitos Canyon,  Anne Harvey of the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board, and Aurie Kryzuda, ConservAmerica board member.

“Del Mar Mesa Preserve is an important animal life corridor connecting Los Penasquitos Canyon and the city and county habitat systems,” said Ross about the 900-acre preserve within the boundaries of Del Mar Mesa. It is considered a core conservation area by the City of San Diego because of the many listed and endangered species.  For more information, visit http://www.delmarmesa.org/
