San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy gets assist from NCL San Dieguito chapter


National Charity League, San Dieguito, Inc., San Dieguito chapter, has selected the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy as one of this year’s community partners.

NCL has committed to support the Conservancy through direct hourly volunteering. The first event was held June 19, when volunteers helped restore the San Dieguito Lagoon Pond, removing non-native plants. The pond is south of El Camino Real, across from the Dust Devil Nature Trail.

Future restoration events are taking place at two of the Conservancy’s restoration sites, the lagoon pond and Crest Canyon Open Space Preserve in Del Mar, including on July 17, and Aug. 8 and 14. The group will also be helping at the Conservancy’s annual River Valley Fest gala on Oct. 11.

Organized over 40 years ago, NCL’s mission is to foster the mother-daughter relationship in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. The SDRVC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to preserving, protecting and restoring natural and cultural resources within the San Dieguito Watershed. The headwaters flow from springs on Volcan Mountain north of Julian and meander some 55 miles to the San Dieguito Lagoon, between Del Mar and Solana Beach.
