San Diego Canyonlands



Join Olivia Canyon neighbors, community volunteers, and San Diego Canyonlands for this stewardship event in the canyon as part of their restoration efforts. Help them create a healthy habitat for wildlife and a safe place for recreation in the City Heights community of San Diego.

Volunteers will care for native plants, remove invasive plants, and remove trash and debris from restoration areas. We want to ensure that our canyons in San Diego will remain a place where people and wildlife are healthy and safe.

Feel free to contact San Diego Canyonlands at volunteer@sdcanyonlands.org with any questions before the event.
