ECO: Restore Olivia Canyon

Join Olivia Canyon neighbors, community volunteers, and San Diego Canyonlands for this stewardship event in the canyon as part of their restoration efforts. Help them create a healthy habitat for wildlife and a safe place for recreation in the City Heights community of San Diego.

Volunteers will care for native plants, remove invasive plants, and remove trash and debris from restoration areas. We want to ensure that our canyons in San Diego will remain a place where people and wildlife are healthy and safe.

  • Attire: Wear sturdy shoes or boots (closed-toe shoes are required), comfortable clothes you don't mind getting dirty (long pants), and a hat for sun protection.

  • Waiver: Volunteers under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a youth waiver to participate in their events.

  • Physcial Requirements: These events are flexible, but we ask that volunteers are comfortable with hiking short distances, bending, and physically removing weeds with hands and tools.
