A public meeting of the Governing Board of The San Diego River Conservancy will be held Thursday, November 10, 2016 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the County of San Diego Administration Center (CAC) 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 302 San Diego, California 92101. Read the agenda.
The San Diego River Conservancy is an independent, non-regulatory state agency established to preserve, restore and enhance the San Diego River Area. The Conservancy’s 13 member Governing Board consists of both state and local representatives, creating a diverse partnership dedicated to conserving this highly valued resource of statewide significance.
Our mission is accomplished by (1) acquiring, managing and conserving land; and (2) protecting or providing recreational opportunities, open space, wildlife species and habitat, wetlands, water quality, natural flood conveyance, historical/cultural resources, and educational opportunities. For example, one important Conservancy goal is to build, in conjunction with our partners, a River-long park and hiking trail stretching fifty-two miles from the River’s headwaters near Julian to the Pacific Ocean.
With over 8,000 years of human habitation, the San Diego River Area boasts no less than twenty-nine State Historic Landmarks, four National Historic Landmarks, three state parks, twenty local and municipal parks and public open spaces, as well as rich cultural resources. Today, the region is home to over one-half million people, including five Native American tribes, and at least twenty-five state and federally listed endangered and threatened plant and animal species. The region is also of significant economic value, welcoming more than twenty five million visitors, and helping to support an annual tourism industry in San Diego of over five billion dollars.
The Conservancy will be accepting concept proposal for FY 16/17 from May 30 – July 8, 2016 for Round 2 of its Proposition 1 grant program
