Input sought on design

All of the plans are available on its Web site at


The nature center, which will be located off Via de la Valle, is planned to have viewing decks, a courtyard, meeting space, a research lab and interactive displays on the trails.

At the end of the month, the architects will finalize the plans based on the comments received. Next, the JPA and San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy will begin seeking funds for construction through grant applications, partnerships, sponsorships and donations.
