Lakeside's River Park Conservancy

River Restoration Volunteers
planting Native California plants

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.

The segment of the San Diego River in Lakeside had long been the focus of extensive sand mining operations and heavy industry.
