San Diego Canyonlands: The mission of San Diego Canyonlands is to promote, protect and restore the natural habitats in San Diego County's canyons and creeks. We do this by fostering education and ongoing community involvement in stewardship and advocacy, and by collaborating with other organizations.
Our vision is that San Diego's Canyons are widely respected, managed and enjoyed for their natural and unique ecological contribution to the well being of the land and its inhabitants.
Like the beaches and the mountains, "Canyonlands" are integral to our infrastructure, vital to our air and water quality, providing recreation, nature and quality of life.
We help organize grassroots support of San Diego Canyons by fostering citizen "Friends" groups around urban canyons and creeks throughout San Diego City and County. We also engage volunteers to assist in clean-ups, restoration, protection, and many other critical support tasks.
