by Paloma Aguirre

WiLDCOAST announces the 3rd annual Tijuana River Action Month!!

Tijuana River Action Month was convened for the first time back in 2010 by the Tijuana River Action Network, a cross-border collaborative of U.S. and Mexico grassroots-community groups and non-profits committed to cross-border collaboration to address the conservation and restoration of the Tijuana River Watershed by engaging in outreach, education, and advocating for natural resources. 

Tijuana River Action Month 2012 is a month-long binational, inclusive two-fold effort: to mobilize a record number of people in the cleanup and restoration of the Tijuana River and; to recognize key efforts made on behalf of corporations and agencies to address its pollution impacts.

TRAM 2012 takes place during the months of September and October to take advantage of the window of opportunity between the end of bird-nesting season and the beginning of the raining season. 

TRAM 2012 partner organizations include: Tijuana EstuaryCA State Parks,Surfrider San Diego,  SWIAI Love a Clean San Diego4 Walls InternationalProyecto Fronterizo de Educacion AmbientalWiLDCOAST and is supported by the City of Imperial Beach, County of San Diego,Department of Public Works, the County of San Diego's Park Rangers, the  City of San Diego Stormwater Department, International and Boundary Water Commission, SDGE, REI Corporate and REI Foundation.
