National Trails Day Cleanup: Saturday June 4th, 2011 from 9-12pm!!

Tijuana River Valley Cleanup
Effie May's Trail, Tijuana River Valley 2010

Join WiLDCOAST and UPAC on June 4th for National Trails Day

On June 4th 2011 WiLDCOAST will be hosting a river cleanup in the Tijuana River Valley regional park. The Tijuana River Valley Regional Park is home to two dozen sensitive species. This park offers more than 1,800 acres of diverse habitats that enhance visitors' experiences -- from dense riparian forests along the Tijuana River to coastal maritime sage scrub on top of Spooner's Mesa. The Tijuana River Valley has an extensive system of trails that link the many habitats in this fertile river valley. You can hike or ride a horse along miles of trails, or bring your binoculars to see birds in one of the best bird-watching spots in the county.

Each year with the rains, ocean-bound trash and waste tires are carried and trapped in this sensitive ecosystem impacting native vegetation and wildlife.

We need your help! Join us for the most rewarding cleanup you have ever participated in and enjoy a true San Diego County natural hidden gem.
