ECO: RiverBlitz - Hike & Collect Data

Calling all volunteers with an interest in our River and a passion for the environment! Once a year, volunteer teams use a smart phone app to document to document invasive plant species along the San Diego River. This point-in-time data allows us to measure the health of the riparian ecosystem and plan our cleanup strategies for the next year.

This is a wonderful hands-on opportunity and a great way to make a difference for the future of the river and surrounding area.
