Revive Our River: Restore Riparian Habitat in Mission Valley

May 11 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


The San Diego River Park Foundation invites you to join us to help restore some beautiful riparian habitats in Mission Valley.  After several years of sawing down huge invasive plants, we are finally seeing the native species start to thrive, but they need a little help to re-establish so that they can provide benefits to the local wildlife.  Volunteers are needed, no experience is necessary!

Join experienced leaders in efforts to remove non-native invasive species from the lower San Diego watershed, adjacent to Town and Country Hotel and Fashion Valley Mall.  Volunteers will work as a team to learn about restoration efforts here, and help to eradicate various invasive annual species, including wild radish, black mustard, crown daisy, and more. Additionally, we will focus on our restoration area by watering new plants. As we always say, “Many hands make light work!”

Additional Notes:

What to expect: Many of these invasive plant species are small annuals and require either weed whacking or hand pulling, so expect to get dirty. While there will not be specific youth-focused activities, this event welcomes volunteers of all ages, including chaperoned volunteers under 18, and there will be restoration activities appropriate for younger volunteers.

What to bring:

  • Please wear long sleeves, long pants, and sturdy closed-toed shoes for protection
  • Please wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen
  • All necessary tools will be provided, but feel free to bring your own gloves or safety glasses if preferred
  • Please bring a reusable water bottle, so we can limit single-use plastic
