The River Park needs plant enthusiasts to help maintain our new property at Cactus Pond. The property is currently overgrown with invasive plant species and we need help to remove the invasives to make room for healthy native species.
Current plant knowledge not required, we can train you. You just need to have a passion for nature and be able to navigate natural, often unlevel terrain.
We are looking for volunteers on an ongoing basis who are available Thursday mornings.

Lakeside's River Park Conservancy was founded in 2001 with the mission to preserve and restore the biological integrity and beauty of the San Diego River while integrating recreational, education, and cultural opportunities for youth, seniors, and families East San Diego County.
The segment of the San Diego River in Lakeside had long been the focus of extensive sand mining operations and heavy industry. Such industrial operations are coming to an end and a new phase in the river's life is at hand; one in which nature and humanity work in harmony and regional quality of life is enhanced.
