The San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy was founded in 1987 to protect, preserve and enhance the San Elijo Lagoon and its watershed. California's coastal wetlands traditionally provided water quality, flood and erosion control, habitat for plants and animals, and recreational opportunities. However, 95% of all wetlands are lost forever to urbanization and development. Covering 1,000 acres between Solana Beach, Encinitas, and Rancho Santa Fe, the San Elijo Lagoon is home to 700 species of spectacularly beautiful plants and animals, many of which are critically endangered. Visitors enjoy 7.5 miles of hiking and jogging trails leading though six different plant communities. The conservancy works to maintain and improve the health of the lagoon though habitat restoration programs, scientific monitoring, and environmental education.
The San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy focuses on:
- Carrying out a biological management plan for the Reserve, including keeping the inlet open, habitat restoration, invasive plant control and land acquisition.
- Cooperating with government agencies to administer and protect the Reserve.
- Working with private property owners and local jurisdictions to minimize development impacts.
- Increasing public awareness and appreciation of the Reserve through an environmental education and outreach program.
