ECO: Tecolote Canyon Preservation Crew

Enjoy the canyon as you remove weeds, do a little watering and pruning! While removing invasive species, you can learn all about San Diego's native plants and ecosystem. This is great project for kids to get hands-on and learn about their own backyard! With your help, we can help keep San Diego thriving and beautiful.

During the rainy season (Oct – April) you will get your hands dirty and plant native species! Come spring time, you can enjoy the satisfaction of watching your efforts grow and blossom. One of the most important environmental needs in San Diego is protection and revitalization of its fragile ecosystem. Southern California hosts some of the most fascinating species of plants and animals in the nation!
