San Diego River Park Foundation
The mission of the San Diego River Park Foundation is to improve the lives of everyone and everything involved with the San Diego River by creating the San Diego River Park. “The vision of the San Diego River Park is a greenbelt from the mountains to the ocean along the 52 mile long San Diego River. This greenbelt is really a trail system and a clean and healthy river system which connects a diversity of parks, open spaces, public places and community facilities spread out along the length of the River.”.
The San Diego River Park Foundation was founded in 2001 and is dedicated to conserving the water, wildlife, recreation, culture and community involved with the San Diego River. The foundation has brought people together throughout all of San Diego County with different volunteer opportunities and events.
In October 2006, the San Diego River Park Foundation was the Watershed Highlight of the Month. The California Watershed Network acknowledged the San Diego River Park Foundation for their five years of restoration projects throughout the San Diego River community.
