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

Volunteers should be comfortable with hiking short distances, including going up and down embankments and ducking around under vegetation. No experience necessary and all supplies will be provided.

This event has multiple shift options:

  1. Saturday, April 7th, 9am - noon
  2. Saturday, April 7th, 1pm - 3pm
  3. Sunday, April 8th, 9am - noon

Please indicate which shift(s) you would like to attend when you RSVP.

This is a wonderful hands-on opportunity and a great way to make a difference for the future of the river and surrounding area. Due to the nature of the work, we cannot accept volunteers under 14 years of age for this event.

For more info and to RSVP, call 619.297.7380 or email volunteer@sandiegoriver.org Community service hours can be verified.
