The Friends of the San Diego River Mouth, a chapter of the San Diego River Park Foundation, needs volunteers with an interest in helping to save and restore one of the last remaining Coastal Dune and Wetland Habitats in San Diego.

They are meeting this Saturday, July 28th, at Dog Beach in OB, from 9am to 12 noon.

Coastal Habitat restoration projects are needed as over 95% of these habitat areas are now gone due to development. Home to many endangered birds, fish and mammals this area needs your help to remain as a viable habitat area. An educational walking tour will be included. All are welcome even if you can’t stay to help us with the project.

Activities to include invasive plant removal, native plant rescue, trail maintenance and litter removal. Help us make a difference for the wildlife that can only survive here and nowhere else.

All tools and supplies are provided. Community service hours can be verified for those that need them.

Be sure to dress in clothes that can get a little dirty and wear closed shoes, no sandals or flip-flops allowed for safety reasons.

Volunteers will meet in the grassy area just inside the Dog Beach parking lot in Ocean Beach at the western end of Voltaire Ave. For more info call 619.297.7380 or email richard@sandiegoriver.org

Thanks for posting this event! Not only is OB an awesome little town with the best beaches but we are also fortunate enough to have this incredible living laboratory at the back side of Dog Beach, the coastal dune and wetland habitat is such a wonderful natural resource. We have many federally listed endangered plant species and other threatened species of plants and animals. 95% of these habitats in CALIFORNIA are no longer in existence, not just San Diego. Join us for an interesting and informative walking tour of the site starting around 9:15.
