The San Diego River Park Foundation is dedicated to fostering stewardship and appreciation of the region’s namesake waterway. In order to protect and enhance the San Diego River as a place for recreation, habitat, and nature discovery, we are dedicated to engaging people to be stewards of the River and working towards the vision of a 52 mile, river-long system of parks, open spaces, and community places.
We organize many different volunteer stewardship activities each month. River Cleanups, native plant gardening, habitat restoration, volunteer leadership, water quality testing, outreach and education, special event committees, technical committees and more.
Friendly organization! We had fun painting the signs; the only issue we had was during cleanups at the point loma nature park. We had to leave abruptly because a homeless woman had wandered into the area and obsessively fixated on my child to the point where she was following us around mumbling things at him and it made us extremely uncomfortable.
SDRPF is friendly, organized, has the materials on hand, and brings a lot of good people together. This agency also provides connections to local environmental groups. I'm excited about their many projects and their vision for the river.
SDRPF is a caring, supportive and exciting group! I've worked on several projects with them and it is always so much FUN! (Especially the murals!) I love the interesting, professional, non professional, environmental, single, married, young, old, (middle aged!) diverse people that come out for these things. Everyone has always been friendly and I always come home, tired, happy and very much fulfilled, from my days involved with them!
